A couple of our local visitors   Leave a comment

Just a few of our local visitors – these birds have been visiting for a number of years – and can be here on a daily basis – or sometimes months between visits – we have a Bird Feeder – which I put seed out on a random basis – so the Birds do not get dependent on it.

These 3 Cockatoos lined up – asking when Breakfast is being served

This one thought I was taking too long to acknowledge their request and was threatening destruction on part of the balcony if I did not comply

And then having a bit of a preen

Meet Psycho – one of our more regular visitors – he looks innocent enough – but will quickly throw a wing up to keep anybody else from sharing the seed with him as per this video

And this post will hopefully be the start to a return to blogging .

 

 

Ibis’s in the park, Macro Style   1 comment

I went to Roma Street last Friday on the way to work, for a look around and to check out Macro possiblities.

So set up for Macro, with 60mm Macro lens, of course I would get a birding opportunity.

I captured this Ibis sitting on top of this post, looking very regal.

 

And then he flew off.

As previously mentioned, these were taken with 60mm Macro lens on a 7D.

Cheers Dave

Pelicans on the Pond   Leave a comment

I went back on Friday, to where I photographed (last  Saturday) the duck photos I put up yesterday, and was Please to see two Pelicans on the pond.

They were quite mobile paddling from one side to the other and back again.

 

Had to include this shot, the photos of birds I take going away from me, exceeds greatly the number I get good front shots of .

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm lens.

Cheers Dave

 

 

White Herons   Leave a comment

On the way to a friends house for dinner last Saturday night, we met at a pond down the road first to take some Bird photos.

Below are some different White Heron photos, I like these majestic, almose noble birds.

We were lucky they roosted in a tree close to the bank, using the camera’s flash for this one, as by now it was dusk, and light was failing.

These smaller Herons were roosting in trees in the middle of the lake.

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

Cheers Dave
