birdy pics (d200)

Discussion in 'Birds' started by silver, Jan 3, 2006.

  1. not that great but I figured if I put d200 in the title at least a few peeps would look :wink:

    taken yesterday at marwell zoo in hampshire uk

    all with d200 + 70-200vr, w/o flash

    mandarin duck




    not sure what bird this is, common in UK, anyone know?

    heavily cropped exotic, about the size of a uk heron, should have made a note what it was


    I generally size for the web to 1024 wide so these are down sampled, larger ones / full exif @ http://oneoddsock.co.uk/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=26 :smile:

    Pretty good shots. You should at least try posting one full sized (1024) just to see how it fits.
  3. thanks, still getting used to switching the iso around, on the d70 it was usually ok to leave @ 200 but the d200 (with my 'technique') needs the shutter speed watching a bit more :smile:

    couple @ 1024, they fit fine on the forum (on my screen)


    slightly veering off topic - lesser spotter leopard cub :wink:


    thanks :smile:

  4. Love the colors on the mandarina good job on these
  5. very nice detail! thanks for sharing
  6. thanks all :smile:

    it's hard to make the ducks not look plastic, their feathers have such fine detail

    I think the little bird is a female sparrow of some sort (looked on google)

  8. The Mandarin Ducks are certainly colorful. Looks like you had a good visit to the zoo.
