Just one more that I liked. Maybe if it ever stops being nasty outside I will get out and have some fun! :(

A lot to learn :) Dyxum has made me love photography more than I ever expected!

Thanks John and Ian, at the risk of boring you a couple more. I was actually after a Goldfinch when the Kestrel spooked them [or more likely me, I haven't got a close up shot of one yet.] The flock was about three times that of the shot then the Kestrel landed as if to say "better luck next time mate"!!



Cropped.







Oops sorry stuffed up the size, hadn't planned on posting the last two..

@hooni: Wood Ducks are not common in my area. Nice catch. A bit more duck and a bit less environment would help the image.

@Brandy: Beautiful kestrals, Peter!

@teddybear: Richard, Very nice shots, but you may want to back off the saturation a bit.

@Stan53: Tough lighting on both shots, Peter. A vertical crop on the pidgeon might eliminate some of the distracting background. Some fill flash or curve adjustments would tone down the background and bring out some of the detail in the Kingfisher. Just my humble suggestions.

@Reflekt: Great catch, Jan! It's a bit bright on my monitor. I don't know what distractions might be out of frame on the left, but did you try cropping with the bird on the right? That would give him/her a little more room to "creep".

Cheers... Brian

Thanks. What do you think I should do to correct it?

Finally felt well enough to play with the camera. Went birding with the beercan.

Tufted Titmouse


Don't know what this one was, but it was an interesting pose.
