  1. When it comes time to do birds photography, all eyes are turn on the telephoto lens model you are choosing to realize your pictures. And it is also obvious that such an optic has to give you at least a increase magnification of 10 times compare to your normal eyesight. That means for the Micro Four Third format something like a 250mm (10 X 25mm). But you can manage to install a more bird friendly and nearer (!) environment, with some bird tables (feeders) or baths that will allow you to be nearer of them as it is my case with the advantage to get a more predictable arrangement and a better rat

    Skagit River Eagle Shoot

    I just finished with my trip to the Skagit River Valley in northern Washington State. I came for the eagles and they did not disappoint! The Skagit River as with a few others have now plenty of dead Salmon, having died after spawning. So it is like a buffet for them. These are just a few. All taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, and all taken from a boat which made for a challenging shoot.

    Had a morning out with my son the other day - kitted him with an old camera and 28-200 lens and we went for a walk around the local duck pond. He got some pretty good stuff, considering the gear I'd given him. Here are a few of mine from that day. 1 - Duck rearing 2 - Pigeon Landing 3 - Ready to Launch 4 - up close 5 - Ready to Launch #2 6 - In the mirror 7 - White faced heron All D7000 with 70-300, so sometimes a bit soft from the lens, also slightl

    Gippsland Lakes Wildlife

    Had a short break at Lakes Entrance, Victoria over the New Year holiday. Here are a few shots of the wildlife from that trip. A seal playing in the entrance channel - whilst taking this picture, there was a family sat next to me and the kids never lifted their eyes from their phones - shame! Seal The channel was also popular with Comorants. Comorant The walk out to the entrance channel passed under many trees full of birds, including large numbers of Rainbow Lorikeets. Lorikeet

    Common Minnesota Birds

    This is a female Northern Cardinal, one of my very favorite regular birds here in Minnesota. They hang around all year and do not migrate south like many of our others birds do. I shot this at ISO 3200 at a 1:125 sec with my E-M1 with the 300mm F4.0 and 1.4x converter which yields the same field of view as an 840mm on a full-frame camera.

    Flight of the Great Blue Heron

    I have been quite busy of late with workshop clients, but thought I would post a few from this past weekend. The first birds that really start nesting this time of year in Florida are the Great Blue Herons. The colors and additional feathers really make for great photography subjects. These were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 300 f/4 AF-S, non VR, lens, handheld. I am off in 10 days to the Seattle area for three mornings of eagle photography down the Skagit River. This time of year with the end of the salmon run hundreds of eagles gather for the feast.

    Florida Scrub Jay

    The Florida scrub jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens[A]) is one of the species of scrub jay native to North America. It is the only species of bird endemic to the U.S. state of Florida and one of only 15 species endemic to the continental United States. It is found only in Florida scrub habitat, an ecosystem that exists only in central and sometimes south Florida and is characterized by nutrient-poor soil, occasional drought, and frequent wildfires. They are omnivorous and eat a wide variety of acorns, seeds, peanuts, insects, tree frogs, turtles, snakes, lizards, and young mice. Scrub habitat has

    Found New Eagles Nest

    Hi all. Last weekend I was on the west coast of Florida and along with one of the eagles nests that we knew of we found a new one very close by. The action was slow and it was getting to be mid day, but still was able to capture a few images I liked. Both images with the blue sky were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, iso 640, handheld. The other image of the eagle calling was taken just at dawn and I was trying out the new Nikon 2.0E III TC with the D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens. I had not been impressed with Nikon 2.0 TC's in the past but this ver

    Backyard Birds

    OK, I bait my subjects, but they are willing participants in this arrangement. I built what I call my "bird studio" in our backyard. It is a work in progress, but I am getting a larger and more diverse base of local birds just outside the windows of our home in Minnesota. This is a White-breasted Nuthatch I shot this afternoon from our bedroom window. This peanut feeder has been a real magnet for woodpeckers as well as the nuthatches such as this guy.

    More Florida Eagles

    The eagle nests all over Florida are starting to get refurbished for the next generation, which gives us some nice photo ops! This particular nest close to me unfortunately gets mostly side light from the place one needs to gets shots, for it is on private property and you cannot cross the fence to get a better lighting situation. The lighting yesterday morning was off again clouds, sun, more clouds, etc, but seeing that the activity was quite high, I took the shots and made the best of the lighting, albeit not great. The one time I had them in the right light and such they came too close f

    The Birds and the Bees

    Finally got a day out with the camera today. Having a bite to eat at the Olinda Falls picnic area and a couple of Kookaburras started to keep an eye on us. As we open some salami, one flew down and sat in the middle of the table. Had to back up a bit to get some pictures: Kookaburra up close Kookaburra 2 Kookabura in flight Also had an Australian Magpie get fairly close too. Magpie Both Kookaburras and Australian Magpies are quite distinctive in their sound as well as look.

    2015 Galapagos Adventure

    Last year I spend 10 days aboard a boat in the Galapagos Islands. It was an amazing trip to say the least!!!! Before we left for the islands, we spent a day up in the highlands of Ecuador with lots of hummingbirds. I used mostly the Nikon D810 camera body which gave me so much latitude, especially with iso. The first, of the Collared Inca Hummingbird, was taken with D810 and Nikon 300 f/4, ED, AF-S lens, non VR version, at iso 10,000 for example.

    Some More Images From My Eagle Morning

    They are quite the animated couple with lots of interactions between them. All taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens. The first one was taken as I was just arriving, just at sunrise, one made a very low flyby.
  21. Our Florida Bald Eagle Pairs are returning to their nests to start building for the next generation. I just returned from a visit to one of these nests and really was able to captured some nice action as the pair built back their nest from last year. This one is the first one I processed, and thought I would share. Captured with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens.

    Local Patch

    One of a few local, well local to me, wetlands is the Viera Wetlands, in Viera, Florida. There is usually always some action, but starting in mid October through to April or so the action is really great. Not only does the activity get better but the birds get that much more attractive due to them trying to get breeding partners. These were taken with the Nikon D810 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, with and without the Nikon 1.4E III TC. This was end of last year prior to the D500 coming out. The female belted kingfisher is my favorite!

    Blue Cypress Lake Osprey

    Starting in January each year, some 200 pairs of ospreys start arriving at a very special place we have here in Florida. This place is called Blue Cypress Lake. Going out on a pontoon boat is the best, and really only, way to really see and experience these ospreys. My friend has a pontoon boat, so I am fortunate that each year we make at least two trips down to the lake to capture these lovely birds in their full breeding colors, plus the chicks and juveniles. These are just a few from this year. All these were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, handheld. The

    Black-bellied Whistling Ducks

    During the heat and humidity of our Florida summers we have a few subjects that still can get us out of bed early and sweat to capture. One of them are these Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. At a place called the Viera Wetlands, in Viera, Florida, there are quite a few pairs that start arriving in around May to breed and nest. These were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL,ED, VR lens, handheld. One family with 18 chicks was seen last week. Problem is they are lucky if two survive the gators or hawks.
