Excellent Teal shot Mike. Teals are one of my favourites for sure.

Mike, I like both your Great Egret and Teal shots. But I have a thing for Teal BIFs and yours is so striking for its color, sharpness and sense of motion. So well done!

PS - I think you earned a pull at that little original bottle of yours.

Ha, ha...yes. I did take a pull on that little bottle, Steve. I have never before seen a blue-winged teal on this pond. When I started shooting, I was truly surprised to see what was in my viewfinder.
Your very kind Kudos are truly rewarding, and I certainly do thank you for all the wonderful things you said. Much appreciated.

Many thanks, Jose. Your kind comment is much appreciated. This is the first and only time I've ever had a blue-winged teal visit this pond. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised!

Teals are pretty common in my area but they are difficult to approach. I shot these guys a couple of weeks ago ( heavy crop ) they are immature non-breeding plumage so not as striking as your example, your shot is really excellent.

Very nice flight shot of these immature blue wings, Jose! Out in my area, we don't get a lot of the blue wings, but the green-winged teal and the cinnamon teal are quite common.

Wow, Grzegorz, I am astonished at your ability to photograph bee-eaters in flight. I've had a lot of opportunity to shoot Rainbow Bee-eaters here in northern Australia. They are also very fast and erratic in flight. I've taken thousands of shots of them with an R7 and various lenses, but only scored a handful sharp and in frame. Yours are simply amazing.


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

Thanks Vassilis for giving us the scientific name for this bird. I've been wondering if the glossy ibis in Europe and/or North America is the same species we have in Australia. It is.

So for the last few months I have posted a lot of osprey and eagle shots from a fish ladder near where I live in Maine. Tracking the raptors in a dive is challenging, but fun. I thought I would show an un-cropped view of where I have been shooting from lately. The A1's 50mp comes in handy for large crops, that is for sure. The red building in the background is where they control the harvester from during the alewife run, and the wooden trough is also part of that equipment.

I'd never heard of the fish called alewife before but I think it's amusing that an alewife is a fish and fishwife is a foul-mouthed, drunken woman!

For once, Flickr actually explored one that I really think is a good one (even if the legs are a bit blown out).
