This is, what describes Holbox best to me, or how I will remember it: beaches and birds.
It seems that everyone is used to share the same place with each other....

... well, maybe not everyone... :unsure:


Very nice series, Oskar. I really like your pictures.

Here is my only bird from the walk today. There were 3-4 Rudy Turnstouns foraging at low tide at the nearby beach park. I concentrated on one of them - it was picking off crab after crab! Didn't have wide window for taking photos: according to the NOAA radar there was another (but small) rain coming and I was in rush to avoid it...

Nice series ISv! I really like the depth of field on these. Makes you feel like your right down in there with the bird. Good job.

Nice! They don't seem to mind you. What were you shooting with? I've been trying to get a Northern Flicker (type of woodpecker) and he has been just way to jumpy, even with me in hiding.
I was indoors with double glazing between us. The Jay was with the 100-500 on the R5, and the Chaffinch and Woodpecker with the 800 f/11 on the R5. I used to shoot Northern Flickers in Halifax NS in my son’s garden, BC.

I haven't posted much lately, but I'm still out taking photos! The end of the year and new year brought a few rarities. A day after Christmas, a Tufted Duck showed up in Milwaukee and is only our 3rd state record. Then on New Year's Day, a Purple Sandpiper was found along Lake Michigan. A Ruddy Turnstone has also been hanging around the lakefront for several months and refuses to migrate south! I was able to see a Red-necked Grebe that was near breeding plumage and Waukegan Beach hosted a Small-billed Elaenia, which is from South America! Today, I found 3 Long-eared Owls too!

Actually the reason for the DOF was the fast and rather erratic movement of the bird. I got plenty of photos with the pray by far not in focus...

Here are the others... These birds I was so close too, that I couldn't use my 600, and had to switch to the 100-400. It is incredibly sharp, so I never mind anyway.
