    Birds Three Guys and a Gal

    Six male Hooded Mergansers and one female were having fun a couple of days ago playing the "mating game." This particular shot shows just three males escorting the gal (the other three were out of camera range) and clearly they were enjoying themselves. So was she, as evidenced by the glint in...

    Advice Wanted Which combination for photographing small things (birds, wildlife) at long distances

    I have two camera bodies: OM-1 and Fuji X-T5. I want to upgrade a long lens to either the Olympus 300mm f/4 or Fujinon XF 150-600 f/5.6-8 lens. I am mostly interested in anyone who has experience with these two lenses and their evaluation of image quality. (I am not that interested in BIF so...

    For the 'Birds in Flight' shooters, a few questions. 🐦

    My first DiY bird feeder

    We got 2 big old trees cut down at the workplace and it got me thinking of a few ideas. This is one of them: to use a large-ish log as a bird feeder in my garden. I picked a reasonably portable log that won't start rolling in the wind. I am thinking of drilling some holes for the bird food on...

    Philosophy What a difference 3 minutes makes (AKA And Then the Sun Came Out)

    I knew I had taken these photos on the same day, but I thought it was the same bird hours apart. I was floored to discover it was just 3 minutes. I posted this here, rather than the Show Birds thread, because I thought it might help someone else appreciate the power and moment-to-moment...

    Birds The Fisher

    Didn’t want to swamp the show birds thread with a ton of photos in a single post, but these all belong together. I watched for awhile today as a GBH skillfully fished time and time again, coming up with a fresh fish all but once.

    Fuji Trying out a 10 year old Fujifilm HS30EXR superzoom bridge camera

    Here are some words that come to mind, when I think of a superzoom, in roughly this order: fun, zoomy, miraculous, versatile, compromised, frustrating, disappointing. But I still went and touched the hot wire! Feeling equally bored and inquisitive, I recently bought a used HS30EXR to play around...

    For those shooting birds in their back yard or garden, share your environmental features

    I recently moved my bird feeders closer to the house for winter, just to make it easier to keep them filled. I moved it thinking I may be able to shoot through a window over winter. What didn't occur to me was that it ended up about 20' from the service door on my garage. Last weekend I stood in...

    Fuji Showcase When you're on a cruise and miss photographing birds...

    Our ship was turned away from Cuba by the U.S. Government, so we spent a couple of days in The Bahamas. The zoo and gardens was over booked, so we walked the streets. This is how I knew I missed photographing birds. Even the pigeons started to look good.

    Birds Crazy Barn Swallows

    Sunning themselves on the window ledge outside my office at work. The magic Google says one common theory on why Swallows and other birds do this is to kill Ectoparasites, but I haven't dug deep enough to know if there's any peer-reviewed research on this. Interesting to watch, at any rate.
