I actually prefer the still: nice photo of the Three-spined stickleback (well, despite as a background the Little Grebe is also very nice!)!
OK, you have it - an Extraterrestrial Woodpecker (IDed by that "little dab of red") and the very informative rest of the photo!!!)!Click, you disappoint me... a little only - see the little dab of red. Guess we'll have to call in ISv for a positive ID. >)
1/20 @800mm Because it's kind of like a multiple exposure I had to up the contrast etc. to make it a little more presentable.OK, you have it - an Extraterrestrial Woodpecker (IDed by that "little dab of red") and the very informative rest of the photo!!!)!
I was going to say something like Alan did but he was faster (damn it - time difference!)!
On other hand - looks interesting: it's a worth of opening new topic - Like "Birds in disguise". You just post a photo of bird underexposed let's say 5-6 stops (depends on the available light) and ask "What was that"! Could you share what was your speed at that time - I'm really curious -it may offer new horizons for an abstract/artistic shooting!
And yes - I understand the joke and like it - a lot!
You might say there is a "little" luck involved. And good lighting is very helpful. It seems to me the Downy did a backward fly and then forward and I don't know how other birds might present - better or worse. I'll be watching for your results.Thanks Jack - from tomorrow I may start shooting 1/20! One day I may get similar results (depends on the bird's collaboration!)!
Yes, we need new threads! This is the opening post, and it's not being obeyed on a large number of accasions!Nice series, Alan. The 3rd one is a picture of FIF?
Fish In Flight.
Post your Bird Portraits here
Parrots, Birds of Prey, Herons and all the others ... Just post your portraits here
The main idea of this topic is that the bird is clearly the main part component of the picture and that it is not a bird in flight or small bird on large tree or group shot ...
I will start with some of mine to start the whole
Have fun everyone and I hope to see many amazing shots soon:
