Default kingfisher father (FZ150)

For twenty days I can not go to the oasis, I went today and found the father, the weather was mixture cloudy, I used ISO 200 and shutter speed 1/800- 1/1000.
I put some back to better see the beautiful colors of the plumage ...

These are great Alex! It would be a special treat to visit the Oasis and enjoy what you must be.

Your friend,

Alex a question if i may, seeing as you are getting such amazing shots using your new tele lens. Trudi wants to order me a tele lens for my fz100, i have no experience in this area, but have chosen the panasonic lt55 lens with the adapter. do you think this will make much of a difference to the camera? are you finding it better to shoot with?

thanks mate, and keep up the great pictures

john

Thanks my friend!! These photos were not made with the TC, but with FZ150 only concealed from the hide which is just 5 meters away from perches where I took these pictures.
The LT55 is a good TC and will give you much satisfaction, the important thing is to use it mostly with good light and tripod!
