All were taken with a Takumar 300mm f/4 at 300mm f/4 on a monopod at 5.00pm in semi low light 400ISO 1/640sec.

Not quite the DOF I wold have liked, but I am happy:-)

Bird and animal names can be so different, here is what alibunnylady (and anyone else in the UK) would call a Robin:

Here is an American Robin:



As you can see, like the "buzzard" and the "elk" we are not always talking about the same thing.

Wow, what a beautiful bird, what sort is that one?

I love the second one with his wings stretching, shame I didn't manage to get a couple of shots like that rather than with him just sitting looking around, action shots aren't my forte but I swear I will learn and capture that stunner one day! lol!

LOL, amazing how different birds are from different countries yet have the same or similar names.

awesome photos of an awesome bird
i am going to guess it is a young osprey Crashman
it has a decent set of talons on it

i really like the first lot of raptor photos too
i dont know what kind of bird it is though
it isnt in my Aussie book either

if any Perth people (or visitors) want to get close to some raptors
i suggest Whiteman Park
on a weekend at 11 and 2 i think
there is a raptor flight show
anhd you can get very very close

That is a beautiful bird crashman. I've never seen anything like it. It's almost intrigueing...
