Kingfisher

Post by Happy Grumpz » Wed Jul 10, 2019 12:30 pm

It's been a long time since I participated, mainly due to having completely losing my passion for photography.

I eventually picked the camera back up yesterday after almost 6 months.

I now have the dilema of swapping my Sony 100-400GM for the new Sony 200-600, I'm not too sure what to do.

Anyway, here's one from yesterday...

Sony A7R3
Canon 400mm ƒ/2.8
ƒ/4.0
560.0 mm
1/200
ISO 800

(Huge crop)

Glad you're back, Matt.
Sometimes a rest is as good as a cure ;-)
How did the roller wars go ?
Your kingfisher shows you haven't lost any of your talent.
Its beautiful. The rain gives a unique touch.

Yeah, I’m excited about photography again which is a good thing 8-)

The Championships were good although the results didn’t go our way at all :(

Post? What, like Royal Mail post?

I can understand that photographic interest can wax and wane Matt, got a bit of that going on myself, but I am no loss to photography whereas your obvious talent has sure been missed here.

Great capture, Matt! It's cool that such exotic birds are available where you live. Nothing special here in Moscow at all :( I too actually have not been using my photo gear for quite some time - need to change that.

MANY thanks for the kind words Matt, however I am aware of my limitations :D

George, great to see you here again, you have been missed. I ever thought other than seagulls most of the birds flying around here are either boring brown or black, but if I look closer they all have something to offer the photographer... I just need to try to get better at capturing their good points... :D

Great shot. I'm an curious as to how well the A7R3/FE200-600mm combo will work out. Definitely gives us wildlife photographers some more options.
