Today's walk was a good one

Discussion in 'Birds' started by hillrg, Apr 9, 2005.

  1. Some days the opportunities abound. These were taken with the 300/4 + TC14EII.

    I came across this Killdeer while stalking a Great Blue Heron.

    41838594.

    He was pulling the old broken wing thing to lure me away - from what I am not sure.

    This is him tapping his foot when I was slow to follow.

    Well, I did catch up with the heron.

    As we got back home we saw the Flicker in the tree out back, so I pulled out the 500/4 and TC14 and came up with these two shots:

    Then I took a nap as well.

    Hope you enjoyed a peek into my day.

    Wow! some fantastic captures here, and dang that flicker is Stunning. Great stuff!
     
  4. Simpley awesome shots everyone is fantastic, love the head on shot of the kildeer
     
  5. It was the D2X Frank. It is working out well for me.
     
  6. Wow Rory you did have a good day. Love the shot of the flicker - well done
     
  7. awesome shots of the Kildeer Rory! Especially that second one. He (she?) must have a nest close by. And I see you've brought out your pet Flickers again ;-)
     
  8. Phantasic shots Rory! I always marvel at those excellent bird pics.
    Fortunately, I know that I'm too lazy to lugg around big glass and a tripod, otherwise another big amount of my savings would be gone for good :lol: :lol:
     
  9. Great Images, Rory. Well done.

  10. Nice stuff, Rory, I really like the pose of the last GBH. I have a heck of a time finding them up here out in the open that way, seems I always have a ton of reeds and bush right behind them.

    D2X, eh? Maybe someday I'll make the "move up". How do you like the HSC mode?
     
  11. incredible series!
     
  12. Good bird shots Rory!! :) :) :) :)
     
  13. Wow, Rory :!: . Great pictures then a nap. It looks like a very fun day. May I ask what are those birds in #1 and #7. Thanks for sharing.
     
  14. Rory, great series!!! excellent shots.

  16. Hi Bill

    I have tried it twice, but have not found the need yet. As long as you have the memory I prefer to do my cropping in photoshop.

    Did you ever do any work on the script? I have been beavering away.
