Been some time, have been kept busy but would just give a sign that I'm still running around.

Just posting some of the (imho) best shots I got the last weeks

to start of a fuut (don't know the English name)
I had to up the exposure a lot in raw processing. (+2)
do doubt if it is good enough.

[img]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Ronny/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-13.jpg[/img]Exposure: 0.004 sec (1/250)- Aperture: f/4 - Focal Length: 300 mm - ISO Speed: 100 - Exposure Bias: 0/10 EV
Lens sigma 100-300 ex f4 ...


An itsy bitsy spider - was crawling on the ceiling

Exposure: 0.006 sec (1/180) - Aperture: f/14 - Focal Length: 105 mm - ISO Speed: 100 - Exposure Bias:0/10 EV - Flash: Flash fired
Exposure Program: Manual - Lens kiron 105mm f2.8 - Sigma super 500


A starling - since this summer we have a couple of them in the garden, they are very very shy. Earlier generations almost hunted them to extinction in Belgium.

Exposure: 1/200)- Aperture: f/7.8 - Focal Length: 420 mm - ISO Speed: 100 - Exposure Bias: -2 EV - Tripod + SR
Lens sigma 100-300 ex f4 + Tamron tc 1.4 (the data above has been changed to add the tc)


And to stop a small one, that I just like.

Exposure: 1/200)- Aperture: f/8.8 - Focal Length: 420 mm - ISO Speed: 100 - Exposure Bias: -2 EV - Tripod + SR
Lens sigma 100-300 ex f4 + Tamron tc 1.4 (the data above has been changed to add the tc)

Hope you enjoyed them.

Ronny

Hi Ronny,

Some nice work here! Looks like the Sig 100-300/4 is working well for you.

I like the Fuut (I believe it's a Grebe in English, but it doesn't totally match up with anything I can find in my US bird books) and the spider best (I think it's a jumping spider, but don't know enough to class it any further).

It's kinda wierd that you should mention the scarcity of the starlings there. Around Chicago, they are one of the most common birds -- probably second only to the most common sparrows, and they are so used to people that you can usually get really close without a problem. If you catch them in the right light in the fall -- like you did -- they can be pretty spectacular. From what my books have, they are very abundant throughout the entire US.

Scott

What Scott said - I really like all of these, including your water bird (whatever it might be). I really like how you took out the background with it. It's always fun to look at your pictures.

Thanks Scott,

the sigma 100-300 is a real nice lens to use.
Only one downside weight but can't find any flaws in it.

Thanks Harriet,
