Just a couple pf pics from my backyard.
Those Corellas are exerting their presence over the poor little Rainbow Lorikeets.
Looks nice and lush in your garden.
Just checked Marsden way hey ?
I'll be at my brothers at Loganlea from next Tues night for a couple of weeks, should catch up !!
We shop Coles Marsden quite a bit.
It's very hard to capture birds with their movement, especially with any camera less than DSLR.
What camera did you use for those shots ?
Here's a few of the best I have EVER got, with my Fujifilm 30x bridge camera, Galahs at Purnie Bore waterhole July last year, and a few around Mt Dare same trip . . .
Love the 30x manual zoom (good for wildlife) and manual settings on the Fuji HS10, handy on some trips over the phone or P&S Olympus TG1.
Just got back from Coles. I used Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 400mm lens. The lens is okay for stationary objects and on a tripod, but too slow for action and it loses a lot of light. I had it hand held at 1/125sec and 5.6f to try and let in more light.. I would have been better using a smaller, faster lens and then cropping the result. The camera is great. I have a D7200 as well. But it is the lenses that let me down. I'm saving up for a good Nikon lens. Very expensive though.
This is another shot from my back yard
Not the best pic but a Yellow tail black cockatoo ,his, or her mate was two trees over but flew off before i could get a shot.
Taken on the Calidonia river track, Vic HC, Jan 2016
Yellow tailed black cockatoo near Dayboro.
Great Photo's , We love birds but its so hard to get a good shot when you are driving along and stop , they are gone. We saw over 25 Lyrebirds the other weekend on the track in front of us in a 30klm stretch. . They run off and are gone in a flash before you can do anything.
Guess I will just have to stick to bats
Lol, bats 'hang around' I guess
Sometimes your in the right light with the lorikeets (usually sun) and the colors are truelly stunning, they look good anytime, but if you know what i mean there special...
No Birds to photo today , just something a bit slower , but very cool though
I hate these bastards ! !
Even this seagull thought itself was plover !!
Those Plover are tuff customers . At one of my tip off sites there is a family of them and one of them will stand his ground in front on my semi , shaping up.
I drive around it and its still standing in the same spot calling me a pussy
We saw the biggest Peregrine Falcon I've ever seen , up at Wombat a couple of weeks ago , Its was big and fat , sat and stared then took off before I could get my camera out , so this will have to do in the interim Not having much luck
Not one of mine, just thought it is an amazing photo.
This photo of a "Game Bird" commonly known as a Magpie was taken in my back yard, whilst it looked like it was on it's last day on earth.
I like Magpies , My Breakfast at Marysville Buddy .
We had a hand raised pet Magpie that liked drinking my beer and having a wrestle
Super cool mate
