My dear wife being very patient while I was doing Bird Photography, and many times pointed out birds that I hadn’t seen yet!


Redbilled Leiothrix- Peking Robin-Nightingale- Babbler family-This was one of the birds that sat still long enough for me to get a photograph. I was using a Canon EF 7-300mm zoom lens.  It was shot at ISO 1250/150mm/f 5.6 and 1/400th of a second.  If I haven’t identified this bird correctly please let me know!

I decided to return and capture this beautiful kingfisher on a sunny morning. I also used a Tamron 2x converter with my 70-300 Canon lens on the 7D. I think it is a better photo than the last one I posted. Some of you may say,”another bird!”

Where are the Fish?

Where are the Fish?

I’ve seen this bird most mornings at 5:45 on our morning walk around the Parliament building.  It too dark to photograph plus I don’t have my camera with me.  Today I decided to return later in the day.  I waited 10 minutes and gave up and headed home.  I had only taken 30 steps down the sidewalk when I saw this kingfisher swooping down on the water before perching in this tree.  I retreated and got some photos with a 70-300mm canon lens on my  7D camera.
