Peter, Great king fisher shots.

How close were you getting there? I can barely get close to maybe 60 feet on King Fishers it seems. They're so spooky and run so fast the moment they even think you're coming. Did you camp out and wait for him, or just happen upon him? Anyhow, great shots.

Very best,

Thanks, Just happen upon him, saw it from the distance then slowly walking towards the kingfisher when I got into a good range about 50 feet I kneeled down and fired away few clicks before it flew away. And it keep coming back from the same perch/sign so I was able to get more shots.

I know those owls. I only thought there were two. I've never seen the third one.


Do you know of the other set that's in the park not far from these?


My camera doesn't take great pictures.....I do! :rolleyes:

Yes, spring time can be exciting. I've been looking for burrowing owl's with not much luck.

Pawnee Grasslands is a good place to go.

On the way was a Magpie having a snack...

Thanks. I see them all the time in the Marina near my work but they are really hard to take pictures at, they move all the time to one perch to another.

I like the results on f7.1 or f8 and actually have those numbers in my C1,C2 dial in my 7D.

Yeah, f/6.7 and f/8 both seem pretty good, and 5.6 isn't terrible (when it's available). I haven't really used it at f/11 much; I try to keep my shutter speed up as much as possible.
