  5. Thanks for sharing this nice GBH Iliah. Tame herons are not something we have here where I live.

    Very nice GBH shot Iliah, and it is good to see you post some shots, especially birdies. Just be careful though, it can definitely get addicting. :rolleyes:

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for the encouragements :)

    I was taking those shots because the situation when all the people around are treating Nature so nicely that birds are quite tolerant to camera pointing on them is quite an experience for me; and I want to share these shots with my friends in other country, where the situation is not quite the same :(

    You must be proud of yourselves being so good people :)

    Well, I might think of taking some AF lenses with me to get flight shots :)

    Meantime this one is from 180/2.8 AI-s, 10' distance

    Close-up shot

    Iliah :


    That's a crisp and well managed shot, sir ! Extremely nice work.

    D200 ? RMLite ? There's no EXIF left attached to the shots.

    Dear John,

    It is D2X, RML processing (batch mode).

    WOW Iliah,
    He is beautiful. Grand shot.

    Thank You for sharing with us.
     
  13. Iliah, very nice shots, especially that last close-up. It must be really nice to be able to get so close. Where I live, if you're in a park downtown, you might be able to get reasonably close, but out at the lakes where the birds are in their natural setting, they are quite shy. This is not without cause, however, since you often see a scattering of empty shotgun shells laying around as well. Also, there are several natural predators which makes many types of birds quite wary.

    Dear Dennis,

    The close-up is kind of crude, as it is a flash shot without any diffuser except for the built-in wide flash adapter (I had SB600 with me). Also it lacks any behavior :) I was lying on the ground watching the bird for some time, and it was just standing still. But of course it is a beautiful creature, and its beauty solely made the shot.
     
  15. awesome feather detail my friend. Great to see some shots. Hope you dont mind our rough winters down here...:wink:

    He is quite tame or your stalking abilities are much better than mine.

    Nice portrait.
