Default Bird shot.

Well gang, it the past couple of days both Zig and Northern Greg have posted some pretty impressive telephoto shots of some of their local birds, using some pretty impressive equipment.

They were so good, that it persuaded me to go out with my Oly today and do some telephoto bird photography myself.

Anyway, thought I would share one of mine with you guys.

A photo will follow.

Thanks guys. I also got a shot of an interesting and colorful duck. I don't know all the duck breeds. Does anybody know what kind of duck is in this photo?

I absolutely love the flamingo shot. The clear eye and the framing of that big hooked bill.... Perfect!!!!

Thanks for all the positive comments. Finding the big birds has nothing to do with me; it's just that I live in Florida, and the big birds are abundant everywhere. I have a harder time finding the little birds. That's why I enjoy all the shots that Zig and northern Greg post of the songbirds.

It also helps that the theme parks usually have a plethora of flamingos. Since I don't own any Oly SHG telephoto lens, the kit zoom lens does just fine, since the birds are usually pretty close. I have a much easier time then you guys do using the long reach equipment.
