Beautiful bird, and agree it's good to hear of restoration projects like this.
Welcome to the forum and look forward to continuing images

Hi. This is my first post to the forum, having just discovered it.

The following is a New Zealand native Tui, obviously not too impressed by being interrupted...

Gory details:
Canon EOS 60D, EF28-300L @210mm, f6.3, 1/100sec, ISO-200 hand-held.
Taken on the open island sanctuary of Tiritiri Matangi, in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf. Once farmed, this island was regenerated with native bush and is now the home to many unique and endangered species. The Tui is not endangered, in fact it monsters other birds in November and December throughout the breeding season. The Tui has a beautiful melodic call, and uses it throughout the day and night. Its feathers change colour with the angle of the light.

What a great first image!

I love the Tui. Its call takes me right back to a wonderful couple of years I spent living beside Lake Tarawera. That one looks particularly splendid!


5D3, 7D2, EF 16-35 f/2.8L, EF 24-70 f/2.8L II, EF 24-105 f/4L, EF 70-200 f/2.8L II, EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L II, EF 1.4x III, Sigma 150mm macro, Lumix LX100 plus a cupboard full of bags, tripods, flashes & stuff.

This is one of my favourite photos. Taken in Victoria, BC, Canada at the Beacon Hill Park that was only a few hundred metres from my apartment. At the time I was seriously ill - I had contracted pneumonia and from the lack of mobility developed a cardio-pulmonary embolism that nearly killed me.

At the time I had been virtually immobile for almost 12 weeks, and in desperation to get out I dragged myself to the park and sat to watch the Peacocks do their displays. I rarely move without a camera and on this occasion I had a Canon EOS 60D, with the EF 70-300L lens attached. Despite quite contrasty conditions I was able to get it with the light behind and filtered through its feathers.

While at the kitchen table, looked out and thought my fathers cat got out before I realized wasn't his cat. grabbed my camera and ran out. Found him down a couple houses. then hoping I had the iso high enough for dusk.

Thanks for your welcome Mike. I am looking forward to engaging with the forum. :-)

This is another shot that I took while living in Canada. it's a Peregrin Owl, but frankly it looks a bit like a cute toy!

Details: Canon EOS80D, Canon EF 70-300L 4-5.6 @234mm, f/5, 1/15sec, ISO-200, hand-held. I can't seem to find this lens in the gear list and it keeps reverting to another lens but my description is correct.

This little chappie was at a raptor sanctuary in Duncan, BC, Canada.

He is a cute looking little guy. Nice close-up shot.

Some of the lenses are not yet listed on the gear list. They will eventually get there.

I like the close up! It's a great look and you can see the birds
attention is focused on what you are doing. ;-)a

Very up close and personable, IMO!
This is how I like to shoot people and animals. Great image!
