Thank you gentlemen for the kind words. It was my first outing after we came out of lockdown, guess I should give my camera a rest more often!! Any way here's some more from the same shoot.

More and more into birds, Addy?
Afaic both shots can do with a little cropping
And I like the first one best
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Well, if you hike/do a nature walk with a long lens like the 70-350G birds are a nice subject

Yeah, I know, but then they get into 1:1 territory and the A6400 has AA filter - these are about 1:2 crops.

This is exactly how I started with the bird-watching - I bought a big lens and then looked for nice subjects...

Sandhill cranes lowering the landing gear

To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.

Much easier than swallows, about as easy as cranes and demanding less waiting time than kestrels, is this goose-shot. I liked the chimney.

And yet more of the usual suspects taken over the weekend. I was hoping to find them 'sipping' but to no avail. Good fun even so.
