Good Evening,

Cross-post from Native Lenses:

Taken from the kayak (hand-held) just before the sun dropped behind the trees. This one is getting very calm when I paddle around it. There is a new Green Heron that I will have to do the same with; it is very skittish even at 50-75 feet...

Regards,

Edd

Both images cropped about 20% a side. Please excuse the lighting and more, though I think sometimes hard overhead lighting is so much less used it becomes interesting again? I hope.

I was trying to maneuver to a better position after these shots and promptly almost fell in the water and mucked up my shoes considerably. :whistling:

Actually I was looking for reptiles when I spotted that Red-tailed Hawk in the middle of a swamp. He was hunting a squirrel. From what I heard I guess he got it a few minutes later. It's a beautiful bird of prey. Seen in Charleston SC, 6/6/21.

Lovely set again. The pied cormorant is one hell of a shot. Love it. And many thanks for the tip of how to post a pic here.

With the 3.6 version of Darktable, I'm re-processing many older photos in more natural and balanced light with far better results.

To bury your head in the sand (=to pretend that something (a problem) is not there) says the Dutch saying.
In this case, head in the water but not for a problem but to feed the young chick with love.

Phew those are darn sharp Alan !! Fantastic details.
Thanks for the comment Macro - much appreciated.
I usually use an em1.2 with a PL100-400 for birds but I managed to get a 75-300mm II recently second hand for $250 (AUD) and I wanted to see how it would go with a 16M sensor. Came in mint condition with not even a bit of dust on it. I don't think it had ever been used.
Happy that it works

Allan they're really nice as mentioned and your new acquisition has the capacity to perform wonders IMO.
You certainly got a bargain.
I've had excellent results from mine. I've concluded some of the best outcomes come on clear days, not harsh sunlight, even damp drizzle.
It's an amazing lens for its price but will also throw wobblies when least expected.
