I really like that 2nd shot with the water drop in mid-air. Nice.

Can anyone help me with some comparisons.

Since having 3 children in the last 6 years my early morning escapes have disappeared, I have recently moved house and now have a field backing onto farmland where I intend to build a permanent hide where I will hopefully be able to entice some wildlife in.

Basically I have on my radar 2 scenarios for where I want to go with my bird photography which include a Fuji XT-3 with a 100-400 with a 1.4TC OR a Canon 7d2/3 with the 500/4 Mk1 ( and maybe a 1.4TC ). Is anyone, or has anyone got experience of both of these set-ups. I would also consider the 7d2/3 with the Sigma 150-600 Sport lens.

I haven't included the 400/4 DO, 300/2.8 with TC's but will be curious if anyone has any relevant opinions. ( I heard the early DO's were soft, my 300/2.8 is the Sigma one not the Canon )

Thanks,

Ian.

I'm going to post in Canon and Fuji thread

The selfie crowd will drive you nuts at one of our national parks. Many think nothing of jumping in front of you while you try to compose a picture. I take the ones I need and then get out of the way so others can have their go at it.

Most of my pictures are taken on our property, which I have allowed to overgrow so as to create wildlife habitat. This one was taken on a gloomy morning... Common Yellowthroat aka The Masked Bandit.

Thanks, it is a good example of being lucky when shooting small birds. These guys, while quite common, tend to stay down in the undergrowth and don't typically come out to pose (I have tried telepathy to no avail). I happened to be standing there watching some Magnolia Warblers (which I never got a clear view of) when this guy just appeared in an open gap and stayed there for a few seconds. Better to be lucky than good.

Here is another one from the same foray, this time a Black & White Warbler.

Greater Roadrunner

Yesterday was the only opportunity I've ever had to shoot a roadrunner. He was hauling @ss and stopped momentarily, allowing me to fire off 3 frames. Two were immediately trashed, and this is the only one I kept. It's not the greatest, but I'm just glad to have finally had a shot at one. Now it's off to find Wile E. Coyote  :p.

Might sound stupid but since I have seen and read some documentaries about how harmful is travelling to our environment and how many attractions are destroyed due to the many tourists visiting them I started to limit myself to my living area. Anybody can make a good but boring picture of famous buildings and locations while we are overlooking the simple beauties we might have at the next corner.
With the low cost flights and cheap motels many people travel and just run through cities to be able to make and post as many selfies as possible to show off. in the old days people appreciated travelling more, they had to save money for it, they had more time to enjoy the stay because it was not important to post on social media, pictures were made to make memories.

Yeap!

This is why I moved from landscapes to birds. It's simply a lot cheaper and it's something I can pursue every single day, plus, and most importantly: It's about taking it in, just enjoying the quiet which is required in order to spot most birds anyways. I've noticed those also chasing birds are about 174,000,000,000,000 x more respectful than the people that moved to Portland and think that landscapes are there to be mobbed and checklisted/"next".

Agree with all of these comments on birding.

I find it very relaxing; whenever I am agitated about something I just grab my binocs (need a good pair of these) and grab the camera (can't get any photos if you don't bring it along) and find some good spots to watch and wait. While you have an idea of what you will see you never know exactly what you will see.

I think it would be a shame for someone with your talent to stop making the beautiful pictures I’ve seen from you.
I hope your ankle gets better soon.

Two beautiful images. I’m hoping to try using my 70-300L to get into bird photography this year.
