Hi ISv.
I highlighted a section, of your post, I agree completely with this sentiment and my photobuddies and I will often say no photos but a good walk with good company!  :)
Good luck chasing the Grey Frankolin.

Cheers, Graham.


Graham, thanks for the kind words!
You say "But then its not the gear that counts but the photos..." - and I agree. But even when I get home without photos I'm pretty sure that I spent my (free) time better than just somewhere in the town. And I'm very sure it's not only me like that in this forum!
Today I spent a lot of time chasing Grey Francolin (I still do not have good picture of these) and didn't see it. Come back with pics that could be good for "plants"/"insects" discussions but not birds :). Still it was nice relaxation. Tomorrow - again! Monday back to work despite the long weekend here - have to :-\
I will post some older photos - just to keep it going.

Hi,

The arctic finches have been flooding into Wisconsin this year, and for the first time since 2011, I have Common Redpolls at my house! I even was lucky enough to get a Hoary Redpoll. These were shot with 7D mkii / ef500 f4 / 1.4xiii.

Not the greatest shot, but... A Clark's nutcracker scarfing down a tourist's lunch at Lake Louise, Banff NP. The tourist was sitting beside my wife and me on a bench when the bird swooped down, knocked the sandwich out of the woman's hand and proceeded to eat it.

Camp robber's, lol.

Spending a bit of time watching a small group of Short Eared Owls that are wintering down here.  This one perched nearby on a tumbleweed just before sunset.

Hi Jussi.
Never would have thought of gulls as cute, certainly not the ones we see here, but those look cute. Nice shot.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi dpc.
Nice capture of an opportunist thief, I’d sooner loose my lunch to a bird like that than the gulls which are the usual thieves here!

Cheers, Graham.
