That would have been a wonderful shot, Sunrider. Still good but so frustrating when it could have been perfect.
I need to upgrade my photographic kit but I've just spent all my money on a swaro scope and I'm not sure the wife would be too impressed if a forked out for more toys.
I missed a shot twice in one day. First a Herring Gull stealing a Kittiwake chick at Bempton Cliffs.
Later on I missed a Gannet with another chick. In a way I'm almost glad I missed them.
A Kestrel 9:20pm last night
No problems for me seeing any of the photos you have commented on this morning Alan.
Some of these pictures are good compared to some of mine!
Juvenile Wedge Tailed Eagle, Tasmania
(They didn't all post first time, but 2 out of 3 ain't bad!)
Have just hit upon this thread and spent a good 1/2 hour being amused. So encouraging to see that I am not alone
While both look as if taken from a moving car, I was using my monopod for first time, obviously missed the other 2 legs.
Fabulous thread! :) I could post so many lol
Can't get any worse than this :)
Oh Deer !!!
A Roe Buck shot across the front of the hide on my local patch this morning. This is what I got.
By the time I got the side window open he was a fair distance away. He looked back at me as if to say, "Is that all you've got?"
And then was off.
I liked the first one. It looks like he's doing that dressage stuff.
I just love this thread, real belly laughs thankd to all contributers
Ironically, this was one of my better pics of this bird cos it was almost in focus.. It was a pity it was flying away from me. I'm going to let you guess what it is.
Nope, but good shout. All will be revealed in a thread I'll post later.
I thought Peregrine as well from the colour but it looked much too big. I'll try Merlin although I think that would be smaller as well.
