A first for me today when I encountered this Magnolia Warbler. Shot with the R6 and 100-400 II 2x for 800mm.

Congrats, Don! Pretty little bird. Love the second shot especially.

Thank you Levina. I totally agree and I am loving getting down low for my bird shots.

Here is another from yesterday

I decided to process another shot from the Great crested grebe sequence. But this time I added some light to the background so as to not have it all black mostly. I think I like it better this way as it gives context to the bird and as such depth.

Great crested grebe.
It was late in the day but a low sun easily gets the whites on these birds overexposed. So I exposed for the whites and hoped for the best. I honestly didn't know what to do in post. Just brightened the crest a bit so it stood out against the background and applied some sharpening.

Levina these are so nice.
The first one is stunning IMO but all three are uniquely beautiful.
Love the light and the highlights of the bird against the darker background

You must be thrilled to have moved on from seagulls from your home studio for past months plus :-)

You're very kind, Richard. Thank you so much.

I am very happy to be out again, shooting for real.
I am grateful for the gulls though because at least I got to shoot birds! And they were great for practicing with the new gear.
Still, lying on wet mud, shooting grebes is so much more enjoyable than shooting comfortably from one's bedroom! It's crazy that it actually is! :lol:

I do this also at times Levina. Seeing a hint of background adds texture to the image that is helpful.

One of my new starling visitors.

I made a schoolboy error and reformatted the card thinking it was the one I had taken out of the PC so had to recover this file with all the others from my morning shoot. I was unable to recover the RAW files using the free software I found on the internet. The light was pretty low anyway so my ISO was sky so I am not too bothered about the RAW files.

I would be interested in any recommendations for software for recovering files in this situation. I am sure I bought a product several years ago to recover files but can't remember what it was.

Another good one, Paul.
They’re so colourless when young, aren’t they?

What a bummer to have lost your pics though. I had that happen once, long time ago. I used to use different cameras for different tasks and then it’s easy to loose track of what’s on which card. Since then I always double check before reformatting a card. It’s a lot easier now though as all I use these days is the R6! :-P

Pretty cool though that you managed to recover the files, even if only the jpegs.
