Was at an Island today, and saw this Oriental pied hornbill (pls correct me if I am wrong). Saw another later that day, but was too dark in the jungle to take a good pic.

This fella was rather 'blend' in colour, and not the bright orange beak I thought it would be. I at first thought it was a Toucans, but after chk on the net, it may be a Oriental pied hornbill.

I hardly take any bird pics, so I would appreciate any comments on the pics. Thanks.

Taken with FZ10, full zoom, F2.8,

ExposureTime : 1/80Sec

Tchuanye, in my honest opinion, these are excellent pictures. The palm leaves are vibrant and so well framed that they add a tremendous amount to the composition and share almost equal billing with the bird. JM2C. #1 is my favorite.

Great job,

Hiroshi

Hard pics, with the sun behind the "palm".
It must also have been somewhat distant.

The colors are not as those in your macro, but this is obviously another world of photography and maybe you'd need an additional tele for serious bird shots, which I am sure you are not very interested in.

However, as I have experienced, FZ10-20 are great when the bird is in the range of 10-15m or less.

Thanks Hiroshi and Narmer!

Yes you are right, I am not that keen on bird photography, but this fella was quite large and was 20-30m away? and is seldom seen here, so I thought it was an interesting subject to take.
