Default A little bit wildlife from Germany (FZ40/45)

Just three shots from a walk in the sun today.

No PP, just some cutting and resizing.

Thanks a lot for this positive resonance.

The three pictures are made without an teleconverter but with extended zoom.

I also tried to catch some goose in flight, but I think the picture is not so good.

Perhaps a bit out of focus, but I love seeing the spread in their wings. Looks like a lovely day there, albeit pretty cold, eh?

Hi Katsie,

yes you are right, its a bit out of focus.
I still have to learn how to make good pictures from moving animals.

It was slightly colder than in CA, around -4 C ;-) but no clouds and a lot of sun.

As I am a newbie in digital photography I need a lot of training and good tips. In summer I will spend three week hiking in the austrian alps, then I must be good enough to make good photos there from the mountains, flowers, capricorns, deers, chamoises ...

Best regards,

Stefan

It was around -4 C here, just a little bit colder as in CA ;-)

Hi Stefan,

I love the ducks in the first photo - looks like they're standing on the water

Hi everybody,

in the case of the flying geese, which mode would you choose, Q-AF or C-AF?

Cheers,

Stefan

Here a some more shots from today.

I used Q-AF, but was wondering about the different IQs.

Sorry, but I don't know, how I can rotate the picture of the gray heron.

The long-tailed tit was really hard to catch :-)

I hope the pictures are not to bad and you will enjoy them.

Cheers,

Stefan
