:o Been shooting starlings as well, yesterday. What a coincidence  :D

 

Cheers,

Philippe

 

Great minds.  :D

 

I've struggled to tell if that one is male or female, so maybe you know? I've researched the difference, which is mainly a blueish part at the base of the beak for males, and pinkish for females. Looking close at my one though (I have 2 shots of it), it has both a bit of pink and a bit of blue! The other clue is that females apparently have a light brown/orangey ring around the pupil of the eye, which mine has. So I think it's a female. There was something I read that made me question it but I can't remember what.

I'm 100% certain, yours is a female. The male has a completely black iris. A female's beak is uniformly yellow, while a male's got a grey-blue base. I'll show you a male tomorrow (just keyworded them).

 

Cheers,

Philippe

 

 

Brilliant, I appreciate that a lot Philippe, thank you.   :)   I have a note about the sex in my description which I shall delete or edit.

A herd of cows running - Luckily not at me, as I was in their field! Not the best light, but it was late evening.

A little later the same evening, with the low sun giving an orange halo around the cows.

White-tailed deer. There is a large group that lives in a cemetery close to my home. I guess they know dead humans would not be able to harm them...

Juvenile House Sparrow. Is it male or female though? I spent a long time trying to find out but am still unsure, as I see markings that could indicate either.

A flock of Drake Mallard Ducks. It's 2 photos put together (the same 4 ducks seconds later), so there are no duplicates.

Hi Matt,

Automatic transmission and the second trailer follows the first really well, so that makes it surprisingly easy to drive and the added height makes it really good for scouting out photo locations off the highway.

 

Cheers,

Chris
