I watched this guy for a while waiting for him to hop out and pluck some lunch.

Follow his beak straight down to the water in picture one and you can see the fish he's eyeing.

Absolutely beautiful series. Love the dark background against the white bird. It’s not easy getting white plumage clear like that.

Just love the composition of this whole image, beautifully rendered colours and the blue and green blend of the background make it a winner.

Nice capture, with the young uns with beaks slightly open in anticipation.

You don’t say Shalu ;-)a, I’m sure you could make even a pinhole camera sing in your hands!

Amazing shot Rob, sharpness and clarity spot on. In the time you’ve been using it how does the R5 respond in focus, say on a scale from 1-10?
