Default Fz1000 again, Bird shots.

I went to a local wetland bird reserve the other day with my FZ1000, sitting in the hide next to me, some serious photographers, i felt a bit undersized ,the guy next to me had a Nikon D3 with a Nikon 400mm F2.8 lens attached , others either had the same or very similar lens out fits. Needless to say I was the only hand held there.I checked the price for said lens, 10399.
Anyway here are my puny shots which I'm happy with. The lake shot shows you what we were looking at, if you look to the left of the centre man made island, between the island and the middle ground trees, you will notice three white birds , the bottom one interested me so I zoomed in to my full optical zoom 400mm. They were both taken F5.6 1/1000th one was manual exp the other S/P . As I said hand hand, I also did some video of the mother trying to get her chicks into the water, the was amazing.
I'm very pleased with this camera I'm sure there's not a bigger bang for the buck out there.

Good photo's. I don't think you will see much difference between your pictures and the ones from the Nikon D3.

Thank Rudi,
the good news is they look even better full res, unfortunately fluffy chicks never look sharp, so the mum is the one to look at.
I would like to show the video because I used the digital zoom close to 1600mm and got really close to them just in hd not 4k but the result is brilliant.
