Dinner time at Lake Henderson. A300, 70-300G with some stubborn sensor dust... Ran the cleaning cycle, blown it several times with a rocket blaster. Guess it's time for the cotton swab. :-(

Yep, that's some detail on that ostrich(?)
Here's a stonechat I took in Ireland, don't think I had posted it on the birds thread yet (it's slightly reworked anyway
This is probably my best shot ever, so far.

Bernd

Yeah, Frank those spoonbill shots rock!
What an odd creature, looks like a platypus had fallen in love with an egret!

Thanks Bernd. I wish we got the Roseate Spinbills here as well - they're very special.

Welcome to Dyxum Louise. I probably would have tried to isolate the birds or ducklings a little bit better as the stray "bits" detract from the main subject.

But keep shooting, and next time make your posting size a bit bigger -- say 860 pixels wide.

UPDATE: See from your Photostream that you have some shots such as Savernake_Park_28_04_09-53 which do isolate the subject.
