About Taken May 24/11 at the Petticoat Creek Conservation Area, east of Toronto.

The Grosbeaks seem to be one of the birds that like to munch on blossoms this time of year. Even though they are very colourful birds, they are sometimes hard to see because of the way they hide deep in the blossoms and make very little sound.

300mm Nikkor f4 with 1.4tc, hand held.

Thanks Bill,
Nice to see you back for a visit.
The last time I was talking to you, you had left to start your own website, I believe. I have been busy compiling my own images for a personal site as well. I have more than I first thought. I guess that's a good thing. Anyway, when it is half way presentable, I'll send you the url.

Until I took the images of this bird, I didn't know they ate the blossoms.

Thanks Ania,
I got some nice shots of his mate just before this one. I posted the male of the species due to the more outstanding colours. They were actually eating the blossoms.

Thanks Harry,
I originally bought the lens for shooting Auto Racing and Tennis. It performs beautifully for the distances needed for those sports. I added the 1.4TC for small wildlife. But, just like sailboats, there is always a bigger longer lens that we covet. :)

I am impressed by "300mm Nikkor f4 with 1.4tc, hand held" and the D200 is prof gear and with your skills the image is so impressive in comp and corors ( typical D200 D300 ).




Andre Denis Andre Denis   {K:66422} 6/9/2011
