Nothing fancy today

  1. I nipped out at lunch to the lake beside where I work. It was overcast - there were Mallards, saw a Kingfisher, Cormorants, Big Mergansers, Hooded Mergansers, Pigeons, Gulls and a Blue Heron - all very far away except these. Still, it was better than working through lunch...

    As usual these days, all shot 500mm handheld (f/4.8 ISO 400)
  2. Rory...the first duck is my favorite. I like how it reflects into the water and the close crop is something that just stands out to me. They are all very good. Fine job.

    Anytime you get a close-up of a Kingfisher it's a good day. Nice shots. :smile:

    I do have a question though. Why were you hand holding your bazooka?
  4. Well, it was not the bazooka - I was shooting with the 300 + 1.7. I really enjoy the freedom this combo gives me.
