Both of these are terrific Cooper's hawk captures, Paul.

Thank you Mike.

Thank you Shalu.
That's a magnificent Eagle capture.

Does attaching a 2x teleconverter change the Sony cameras auto focusing capabilities or minimize the focus points?
Happy trails

Magnificent - timing, light, photography.

Beautiful light also and a majestic bird.
Very nicely photographed

Classic SCC pose.
I love that deliberate gait of these birds. (probably lost on those that don't know these in their own environs)
Beautifully presented.

Thank you kindly Richard.

Nice shot, Dennis. That looks like a pretty good size meal for that guy.

Thanks Mike, we were astonished that the bird swallowed the Gecko after a bit of bashing to tenderise it. The Peewee did look a bit dazed after the meal though.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

An Adult Little Ringed Plover is very small 14-15cm in length as well as height. You can say looking at the photo that this 3 day old chick is no more than 6cm in height and length. It is the cutest, tiniest chick I have ever seen and was difficult to photograph from the distance I was as it was so small and when it left it's mother it was constantly on the move.

There were 4 chicks 3 days ago but sadly Gulls predated 2 of them. What amazed me was the fact that the 2 remaining chicks were vary aware of there surroundings and any noise they would run to their Mother and seek shelter under their Mother's wings and would come out a few minutes later. From day 1 they were finding food themselves taking the flies from the muddy sand. I just hope they survive with the many dangers there are around them.

Although not great photo's, I'm happy with them. I spent 14 hours over 3 days waiting for the Little ringed Plovers to come out into the open and within a reasonable distance.
You can imaging how sad it must of been to of seen a gull come in so quickly from nowhere and snatch a chick and to swallow it in flight. My first reaction was "Bloody Gull". The 2nd chick was taken on the 2nd day where unfortunately the chick strayed too far from its Mother. The Father was constantly chasing other birds off that got close and taking on other birds much larger than itself. The Aggressive Coots would scamper off and they are around 3-4 times bigger. They are very Protective and brave parents.

I like all the shots of the little ones, Paul. They sure are cute little buggers.

Primo shot, Bob. I like your post processing on this one.
