Birds with attitude
« on: April 16, 2012, 10:33:39 PM »
I don't often take photos of birds, but I have seen lots of character in a wide range of birds today from Ducks to Ravens to Robins.  A lot of birds by Windermere are getting rather 'frisky'  and some poor female ducks are getting jumped by 6 drakes at a time! Sorry there's so many but I actually really like these!  They are all taken with my 100mm macro lens which is SOO sharp!

1. Canon 5D mk III EF 100mm macro at f/10 1/80 ISO 400

2. The ducks appear to be squaring up:

3. I'd like to know what they are saying to each other!

4. This Raven decided to perch himself at a cafe:

6. I think this Robin is ordering some cake for table 29

Instead they are waiting to be fed by people.  The local stores in North West (South) Korea - (the locals don't call it South Korea, just Korea) sell fish sticks to feed the gulls, although they are much less aggressive than the ones to be found on UK beaches.
