I am waiting for few hours to post my pictures. But brettania asked to open a new topic, and I didn't want my lame pictures to open this topic. But no one started the topic, so I have to do the dirty work...

Here are few picture from today. It was bad weather (cloudy and rainy), I used my new lens (Sony 300mm), I mistakenly forgot my SSS off for most of the pictures, and the geese and Robins took over. Anyway, I'll try to find the good ones...

When I arrived, the geese welcomed me and they were very impressed with the new lens:

A700 + Sony 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4xTC, 1/250sec, f/9, ISO 320.

The Robins were less impressed:

A700 + Sony 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4xTC, 1/320sec, f/7.1, ISO 320.

Eventually, I managed to find a different type of bird (Bronzed Grackle):

A700 + Sony 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4xTC, 1/1000sec, f/6.3, ISO 320.

But the Robins didn't like it and became aggressive:

A700 + Sony 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4xTC, 1/200sec, f/8, ISO 320.

And the geese just kicked me out of there:

A700 + Sony 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4xTC, 1/320sec, f/8, ISO 320.

Tommy the Turkey Vulture, a permanent resident of a wildlife rehab center near here...


Up close, he's actually kind of cute. He plays tug of war with his keepers and is quite docile but if he feels threatened he'll upchuck his last meal at you and I was warned it will easily eat through the paint on your car.

Here's another one from Ranson's Beach in the Waterhouse Conservation Area in northeast Tasmania. Frankman would have a field day at this place!!!
Crested Tern Sterna bergii

(Frank, I actually got the twinkle in his eye - pretty chuffed for an 'eye of doom' Tern.)

Hey Richard - That's a cool shot, and yes, you got a catchlight from the "eye of doom". I'm sure there's a biological reason why their eyes are so non-reflective.

What's with the blue on the wings? Was that done in post, or is that how the camera recorded it?
