Some Korean birds (kinds of heron I would suspect)

Canon 5D mk III EF 180mm f/3.5L macro at f/8 1/2000 ISO 250

same camera/lens/settings


white-lorean-heron by singingsnapper, on Flickr

The first is similar to a grey heron, but I know there are other very similar species, which could fit better. The second looks like a great white egret.

A Raven keeps watch for his partner in crime while she picks up some leftover bread at a waterside cafe in Ambleside

They're actually jackdaws and quite typical of their behaviour. The grey head and pale blue eyes are the giveaway. Ravens are also much larger and tend to be found in more upland areas (at least during spring and summer).

The 7D has come in handy as it gives me better reach, plus 10 fps can be very useful, especially with birds that don't hang about long.  Managed to get a little story together out of some of them: (all with 7D and 180 macro)

First a blackbird:

Then along came a family of tits - either blue tits or crested tits - I suspect blue:

Here's the mother:

Just over half a mile away from Chester's cafe is Elterwater which is Norse for Swan Lake.  To make it ppropriate, there were a pair of swans by the shore preening and cleaning.

This is a bit soft (due to user error/inexperience), but it has a bit of attitude (T1I, EF 28-135, ISO 200, 105 mm, f/5.6, 1/125 sec)

Sat in the garden recovering from pneumonia, trying to master my new 5D.
The coughing seems to be too much for the IS, maybe I should complain?

Here's Fluffy, he's got an attitude, not sure what kind though.......

They're blue tits, you'll only see crested tits in pine woodland, unless you garden backs onto pine woods and you're really lucky.

I suspected so, and the RSPB website says tht other tits can have the crest too as the mother has  little crest on top...Few of the birds around that very popular cafe in Great Langdale are all that shy as there are always plenty of crumbs...
