The first one, taken with the EF 200mm f/2 is outstanding. That's quite a nice prime. I have the EF 200mm f/2.8 (black with the red ring in front), and love it, although it's not as nice as yours.

Thank you. Without a flash it becomes a bit harder to expose in extremely bright sunny situations but the wider aperture helps


Desire to learn; a camera & a few other things.

A couple more from today. Loving my new R6 & RF24-105F4.

The aqua blue lake is an abandoned tin mine, when abandoned it was filled with water and with the heavy minerals leaching into the water creates the aqua colour.

My Fav Bird - the Fabulous Kea. Smart as a primate, the world's only mountain parrot, lives in the alpine regions of NZ. They mate for life, love to play and can demolish a car by unscrewing bolts and screws, removing rubber trim and windshield wipers and will decimate your shoe laces if you leave your boots outside. But they are like small kids - quite loveable and absolutely fascinating to watch...

Both these images are from the same shot. The first is uncropped, the second heavily so. I reckon the R6 does an OK job, personally!

Cool looking bird. Thanks for the information about the species too.

They gained some notoriety when sheep farmers let their flocks enter the remote high country, the domain of the Kea. The birds discovered that they could sit on the sheep's back and bite down into them, exposing their fatty layers and even their liver. Sheep died or were injured. Of course the farmers blamed the Keas and put a bounty on them, resulting in the killing of hundreds of thousands of them. The government put a stop to that about 40 years ago and their population is returning slowly. The behaviour is believed to be because their natural prey: the Moa, a huge bird, like an Emu, but much larger and heavier, was exterminated by humans. Basically we killed off their natural prey and offered them an alternative.

These days they love to hang around hiking huts and ski areas, as they offer rich pickings from discarded food or are offered some by humans keen to get closer. They are very picky eaters though, going for high energy foods. I have seen them empty an insecurely covered trash bin, throwing out the stuff they don't want until they get to their preferred items.

This is a photo of a Kea pursuing a ranger, intent of pecking his shoe laces. As we were talking the poor ranger had to keep moving around to discourage the Kea, but it pursued him with dogged determination. It is an unwise hiker who leaves a pack or boots out in the open - the packs will be unzipped or untied, or snipped open, and laces shredded - it's very challenging to walk in boots without laces! Having learned from others' misfortune, I always keep a spare pair with me now.

Buds on a flowering Almond Tree. I had problems with auto-focus so resorted to manual. It worked out quite well.

As a parrot nut, I've been obsessed with these birds for decades. Hope I will get to see them in the flesh one of these days.

Wow, I am impressed they are known so far from home! Great that you are a fan. and I hope when the world returns to some semblance of normality that you can make it over here to meet them.
