There were probably 20 of the birds in the same conservation area. And I got this closer and younger one posing for me

Hi Daniel,

You really did good with these! Just the right exposure for a backlit subject, sharp, and really well timed. Catching the GBH just at the right time for the first shot, then continuing the series to show what it got for its efforts. Looks like a small snake. Did you get any of the bird swallowing it?

Anyway, well done! It's always a rush for me to get shots of them hunting.

Scott,

Actually I wanted to get the BIF shots with my clumsy method of focusing my manual focus A300mm lens .
But it kept hunting and I waited long enough. I did get the swallowing shot but the catch was too small. It was not like a big lump on the long neck.
Thanks for taking time to comment

Daniel

Well done, it looks like it was a difficult back-lit scene but it came out beautifully.

Thanks Ira,

Looks like the heron was not that welcome by the geese











But it is the different bird though. It looks helpless not having any luck in catching

Lovely pictures - looks like you are making good use of your A300 lens (love mine, even with the manual focus). Really like how these came out.

I agree with Scott and Ira, perfectly exposed in under tough conditions. And a nice storytelling series as well.

Very rude geese, BTW.:-)
