Today's company was a gang of assorted terns. Mostly bridled terns. They are basically B/W, so not too much color for them.


Very nice shots Cog! Few ours ago I posted in the "Portraits" with ID for the terns - didn't check the BIF. Now I see you have the same ID here!
Concerning the last photo here - looks like Common Tern to me (I checked also the White-cheeked but it should be with more darker under-body.

A few shots test shots from the first weekend with the R5...the light has fairly sucked since it arrived Thursday, but I grabbed a bit of sunset light on the egret that day. The heron & osprey were taken this morning, overcast and hazy but I couldn't resist. Both of these were quick shots - not the birds I was watching but the R5 responded quite well, powering up before I brought it to my eye and locked on these guys as the flew past. Despite the pictures not being much to talk about, the ability to grab these unexpected opportunities is what I was most concerned about with mirrorless. No concerns any more.

The other concern I had related to EVF and would it limit my ability to track the birds. Rest assured, my struggles to track this morning had nothing to do with the R5 and it's EVF, and everything to do with being in a kayak on choppy water with gusty winds.

I was, and am, very satisfied with this camera. I don't miss the 5D4 any more, and don't need the 7D2 any more either. Guess it's going up on the block to pay for the RF 35 I ordered today. ;)

Nice. If that second one was a sudden opportunity and the camera managed a quick and clean focus lock with that background then I am impressed.
