Gorgeous shots Kev, she's a very lucky young lady to be so close to these animals and she looks so happy to be there too.
An amazing size difference between the little Kestrel and the Eagle .. Wow.

Cheers

And proud you should be, she looks like a lovely young lady and obviously enjoys what she is doing.
I hear ya on the uni thing, my daughter was like a career student, got three degrees in Forensics and Toxicology and now she's a cop and loves it !

A couple from me today and a couple of firsts.

First time I have seen one of these in the garden, a Yellow Rumped Thornbill if I am correct, not the aphids (the aphids did get a get spray shortly afterwards).

And in the local park the first time I have captured a welcome swallow on a 'perch' - I think I got busted on the second shot!!

Interesting, have been wondering what kind of images a 5DSR would produce with this lens.
Has this image been cropped and if so can you say by how much?

Cheers

Hi /....yes ...this image was cropped to over 50% of total size. To put it into perspective if I was shooting same bird with same lens( 100-400) but with my 5dMk2 instead I would have had little or no image left because the crop I did on the 5dsr image was over 4,600 pixels on the long side ( finished size is 4018 pixels long) . So ineffect the amount I cropped out was nearly the whole Mk2 equivalent image. This image left will still allow me to print this A3+ at 240dpi ...... Here is a screen shot of the actual crop . Another way of looking at it is by having a larger sensor resolution is like shooting it with a longer lens( approx 600mm+) if one crops in to get the subject to fill the frame better to how a 600mm on a smaller sensor would do

There is a whole thread on this subject somewhere in POTN that explains how this sensor deliver resultsa similar to how a cropped sensor like a 7d2 acts when it increases reach of a std lens by the crop factor.

Thanks Clipper, that's a neat way to show exactly how much crop has been used, much appreciated.
I'll have a look for the info you refer to and have a read up on it.

Cheers

A couple of visitors to our backyard, they love to eat the Marri Tree seed pods (we call them Honky Nuts) and then for entertainment drop them onto our tin roof.

I took these photos with my new Panasonic GX8 and an adapter to and old 500mm FD Mirror lens

The quail is very pretty too
