Saturday I went to a park where they have a lot of birds from all over the world ! Most of them are FREE and stay there because they are fed everyday, and they "know" they don't risk to be shot !

Here's some images, shot with D700 and 300 f/4 (with and without Kenko 1.4x converter). The EXIF datas are embedded in the images !

Hi Baxter ! Thanks for the compliment !

About the weather, we're having an early spring these last 4-5 days: temperature reach 21° C (70 F.), with no clouds at all !

...but the weather forecast says that from monday onwards, the temperature will go back to "normal", ie. maximum 50 degrees Farenheit during daytime !

I didn't realize it would be so warm. Looks like a beautiful park. Surprising to see the birds flying around.

Yep !

As I said, most of the birds are FREE !!!

Furthermore, at the end of the afternoon, there's a show with 15 to 20 different species, orchestrated by the staff of the park, and the birds fly around the place, passing over the spectators, less than 2 feet above their head (and unfortunately dropping a lot of $hit over the public :eek:)

Just as an exemple, here's an image of the crowd, and a raptor flying over -or THRU- it !

Great collection. I like the eye connect of 1 and 6 best
Thanks Alan ! It takes a while sometimes until they turn their head in a good position !

the birds look very good and you did a great job on the BG-s
Hi Randy !

Indeed I find the "bokeh" of the 300 f/4 quite pleasant... I like the neat separation -at full aperture- with the background !
