If they tell me that I can go back to work, then at least I should be able to go out and get some pictures,
(using my monopod as walking stick)

Here's a compilation of the last day's.

All are with the k20d + sigma 100-300 ex apo f4

Blackbird
To start of an easy shot of our house blackbird. Just waiting for his next meal.


Exposure: 0.001 sec (1/750)
Aperture: f/6.7
Focal Length:
300 mm
ISO Speed:
400
Exposure Bias: 0/10 EV
Flash: Flash did not fire
[line]
Rat
Then after a small walk outside (a bit to small to my liking) I noticed something in the underground.
This is the first time I could get close enough to one of these, -14°C must have made it a bit slower.



Exposure:
0.006 sec (1/180)
Aperture:
f/5.6
Focal Length:
190 mm
ISO Speed:
100
Exposure Bias:
-1/2 EV
Flash:
Flash did not fire

Eurasian Robin
A bit later I noticed this one. It kept a good watch on me to see if I wouldn't leave anything edible.
I'm quite impressed with the quality at iso1600



Exposure:
0.008 sec (1/125)
Aperture:
f/6.7
Focal Length:
300 mm
ISO Speed:
1600
Exposure Bias:
1 EV
Flash:
Flash did not fire
[line]
Eurasian Nuthatch
Didn't expect to find this one, or get a shot of it. Although they are quite common they stay out of sight and are real real fast.



Exposure:
0.006 sec (1/180)
Aperture:
f/6.7
Focal Length:
300 mm
ISO Speed:
1100
Exposure Bias:
1 EV
Flash:
Flash did not fire

Redwing
Next day I came across a new one when trying to walk in the park:lol: .
It didn't have any time for me and continued digging for food.
They come over from the north to spend the mild winter here, but with -14°C the last day's it isn't that mild anymore.




Exposure:
0.006 sec (1/180)
Aperture:
f/6.7
Focal Length:
240 mm
ISO Speed:
1100
Exposure Bias:
0/10 EV
Flash:
Flash did not fire

If you wan't to see the larger versions, you'll have to visit my flickr pages ( http://www.flickr.com/rhermans )

No photoshopping, only a bit of exposure correction and slight cropping in lightroom.

Hope you enjoyed them

Ronny

A lot!

These birds must have been pretty cooperative considering your relative inmobility.

So you have the same policies as we just got as a christmas gift from our government: if you're not quite dead, you're certainly fit enough to work!

Ronny...too cold for this Bama Boy but you sure do a good job shooting in the cold. Hope the recovery goes swiftly.

I guess that my inmobility has helped, something so slow as me couldn't have harmed them. :-)

Considering the way our sick leave works I don't mind that much. I could get another extra 2weeks but at this point I'm glad to go back :?

Nice sharp images--that lens appears to be a winner!

Did not realize you were indisposed...what's the reason (if you do not mind me asking)? Nevermind...just read your posting about LBA being dangerous! Hope you recovery goes well!!

Burrrr! I love your robin, but the blackbird really impresses me - you got a lot of detail. Most of the time my black birds are simply black blobs, with little detail other than the eye. Not surprised about you wanting to get out and about - I go stir-crazy if I'm sick for more than 2 days.

Ronny, these are all nice. But, that robin is stunning. Wonderful work.

Glad to see you got to get out and use the camera. Would have driven me crazy being cooped in all that time. Hope to see more of your work (photos) soon.
