  • Strictly For The Birds

    Hello All,

    I'm a new member from the Central Coast of California. My favorite subjects are birds and I especially enjoy utilizing side-lighting to achieve the look I'm after in my photography. I use superzoom bridge cameras and all images were taken hand-held and have not been cropped. I hope you enjoy these beautiful birds!

    Tony

    1. Snowy Egret Ballet

    2. Black-crowned Night Heron

    3. Great Blue Heron "Hither and Yawn"

    4. Green Heron

    5. Brown Pelican

    Re: Strictly For The Birds

    I certainly do enjoy seeing these, Tony

    These are rather spectacular.

    What also pleases me is the chance to see birds that we don't see in the UK.

    Pleased that you came here to show us.

                    I've peeked at the exif data on a few of these shots and most of them have been taken using relatively inexpensive bridge cameras.

                    This is very encouraging for people who are despondent that they 'only' have a bridge camera. You don't need fancy expensive gear to take great photos like these!

                      Thank you so very much for looking and commenting, Ian. I've learned over the years that a major key to happiness with point-and-shoot / bridge cameras is allowing them to operate within their comfort range. I make every effort to maximize their strenghts and minimize their weaknesses and they provide me pleasing results. That certainly makes for a splendid relationship!

                      I enjoyed viewing your excellent photos on the links you've provided!

                      My usual photography forum signature states:

                      "My wife & I make the perfect point-and-shoot photography team. She points and I shoot!"

                      Best regards,

                      Tony

                          Again. Very nice to see these. We do have the Wood Duck here. But not native.

                          They are bought here for Wetlands parks.

                              I truly appreciate you taking the time to look and comment. The Wood Duck is incredibly beautiful. High on my wish list is the Mandarin Duck. Stunning!
