A couple of Coot ducks playing chase.
 

 

 

Geoff I have never heard of Coot ducks. Coots yes, ducks yes, but not coot ducks??

I looked it up and......Well I must be quackers to think they were ducks.

Would say this is my favourite picture of May.

 

Too technical?

The kernels do look like jelly beans don't they? Don't ask me what they taste like because they are too pretty to eat. :P

I love the difference in the sky depending on which way you are looking.  First looking north, second looking southwest.

Its nice to get rooftop access for different perspectives of the same city or places you have shot over and over.  Sadly tho I didn't get to pick the time of day, the light was a bit harsh.

My new version of this image with a sharp moon rather than blurred, and to scale assuming 600mm focal length for both images (taken separately).

And the damselfly actually smiled for the camera. You are a gifted photographer.

Thanks Paulette.  I must admit I have been described as a star.  As you can tell from my avatar, the star is a white dwarf.   :)

Superbly camouflaged - This Orange Tip Butterfly was quietly sitting there, most likely hoping I might wonder by without seeing it. However, I was surprised when it was quite content to pose while I was veeeeeerly slowly closing in. It waited just long enough for me to get a couple of captures. And I said 'thank you' as it flew away to find another flower. :)

Good morning fellow photographers. Up at 5am today taking photos. :)
 
Some White Mute Swan cygnets at Arundel looking as cute and cuddly as ever.

A Song Thrush having his breakfast (sorry if anyone is eating.....apart from Philippe, as I know he loves eating while looking at my photos).  :D:lol:

A White Mute Swan having a stretch (how did I do any photography before getting my last 2 lenses?!).

She was taking photos of the cygnets too. We had a chat and she seemed very nice. We had the usual discussion about what lenses we were using, etc. I was jealous of her Nikkor 70-200mm, and she was jealous of my Sigma 150-600mm. :)

Geoff,

 

You have obviously heard of the eye level rule for wildlife. You put it to very good effect. Excellent results!

As to the nice woman... Well my son took a picture of my bum up in the air while taking macro shots of a carnivorous plant. I never forgave him...

You can not imagine how hard it was to walk away from these giant cakes with only a photograph.

Thanks for the compliment Gen. Yes you're right, the huge majority of photos look so much better when you're at their level. So often I see people with their expensive camera and lenses standing upright looking down on birds and ducks, and I feel like their expensive equipment is going to waste as their shots won't be particularly good. Lately I've spent more time on my knees at embarrassing angles to get the shots I want. It's great fun, until you can't move later that day from all the bending and twisting!

 

Oh I did feel guilty taking the lady, but it was too tempting. I wouldn't be happy if someone did the same to me though if I'm honest.

 

Geoff.
