Last Sunday Fred_S and I decided to go for a small bird hunting.
On our bellies, we crawled through mud and water to make sure to photograph the birds on eye level (not).
Only Dutch birds on the menu under an overcast sky. The noise-reduction made overtime.

Some of the passing birds

#1 pheasant


It's a beautiful and colorful bird. It made a habit out photobombing the shooting of other birds

#2 photobombing


#3 feather fluttering

make sure nobody's looking and look cool afterward

#4 great spotted woodpecker


#5 colorful bird


all A1 100400GM
And now see what Fred has
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Mmm, a pity, I wish I had known this Mini-DM

Nice shots anyway, Domien!

Thanks for starting up this thread and for the good company on Sunday Domien!
A good start, showing lots of fine detail.

We didn't crawl, but had to pass some water and mud barriers for real

It was my very first real birding experience and liked it a lot.
Yesterday I was still plowing through my shots, but still too many keepers

We were not the only ones hiding

#1 Pheasant


#2 Hedge sparrow


#3 Pigeon


#4 Mrs blackbird



#5 Buzzard


All A99ii + 70-400G (cropped)

Your #5 is nice. Always good to shoot a bird looking straight at you

#8 And another dunnock (hedge sparrow)

That gear of yours is delivering excellent stuff (in your hands) Domien!
I seee you went up to ISO 12800.
Most of mine are up to ISO 3200, with a few at 6400.

You were right Heikki, I changed the order last minute after a preview.
Corrected now. Thanks.

12.800 is the absolute maximum. I have to denoise the raw files to get something reasonable out of it.

Some lovely photos here. I notice several shots with several different birds in, did you do anything to attract them - seeds or such like? If so, you did a good job of keeping them out of shot!
