Things on this side of the pond were ducky today, too...:) (R5 + 100-500 + 1.4x TC SOOC, just cropped & resized).

I don't think she was impressed by their high school hijinks...

Thanks, Click!

Boring geese yesterday in lovely light...this one just got done chasing away some interlopers and felt like flexing for his friends. :) R5 + 100-500

Green heron hunting
Usual gear (7D2, 100-400 L II), but I have never been closer to this kind of bird. Did not lower the camera from my eyes as not to spook it.

1/160 s, f/7.1, +1/3 EV, ISO 400

I really like this shot. Well done, ISO64.

These two small birds can also be found in Europe, but I've never seen one around here.
I captured them in Tanzania back in 2017 while on safari with 7DII + Tamron 70-300.

I really like the Bee eater. It's a particularly nice shot of one of my favourite birds, which I only see abroad. I never got that close in Tanzania, but will go through my records to check if I have something in the same class.

A good day today. As the Brits will appreciate: I got texted before breakfast by the NHS for a booster jab; the local garage had petrol; and in a sunny break in the weather, a male Kestrel streaked by and I caught it in full flight (R5 + 100-500mm upsized 2x).

Most of our Yellow Crowned Night Heron population is about to head further south but some are still lurking around for the Fall crabs. These were taken about 30 minutes apart, one just before sunset and the other after most of the sky color had left.

Just after landing and doing a strut back to the water.

A Spotted Towhee perched upon our cabana. Landscape cropped it and thought it would make a good wallpaper screen for the comp. Spotted Towhee - K1A7576 - DxO.jpg
