Default Shooting on a warm Thanksgiving holiday

Had an usually hot Thanksgiving Sunday in Toronto so I went out with my A300mmF4. I was really close to a GBH which somehow flew straight at me. For handling a manual lens I was caught pretty much unprepared.


















These was taken earlier

Nice to hear from you, Daniel! Have to admit I'm a bit envious about your warm weather, over here we have nearly forgotten how to spell "warm". It's been lousy since mid-July and now autumn is here.

Looks like you were under a pretty serious attack from that GBH!

Mid July? You had better be kidding.
Sunday and today was like 25 deg C and with the sun & humidity it was 30 deg which is unheard of. Anyway fall weather (blasting wind) will come back with vengeance.
I do not see why not. Maybe Northern Europeans can buy some Greek islands to relieve their financial hardship. Then more of you guys can go south

Daniel, glad to see you post. That is certainly a different view of the GBH!

Daniel - great to see some of your fine work again - it's been a while! Amazing perspective on the GBH - pretty quick work with that old manual lens! And really nice image of the cormorants too - such a typical pose...

Great job on the GBH Daniel. I think if that bird had come straight at me, I might have dropped my camera! It was a wonderful warm weekend here in the northeastern US as well -- remarkably warm considering the time of year.

Ha ha I'm not sure who most surprised judging from the look on the GBH's face.

Lovely shot of the cormorants.

Hey Daniel,
I know just the feeling when a bird catches you by surprise!
Nice capture.
