This rather confusing series is actually extrememely cropped, It looks rather confusing, but fortunately, they seemed to have unraveled themselves at the end...:roll:

Those are really excellent Dave - well done!
I particularly like the first and last images in the series. Can you give me any idea of how far away they were when you got the shots? And what lens were you using at the time?

Swarovski AT 80 HD Scope with 1100mm adapter.

The first shot was from about 200 feet, the Mallard from 150.

The first Swan picture from about 150 yards, the last from about 100 yards. If you compare the first and last Swan image, you can see the increased detail, even though I cropped them to match.

Not another one, with those spectacular birds you guys have:cart:

You wait, I just switched to the 800mm adapter. Now I can take high speed shots...

Just you wait

Hey, it's Brooklyn. We only have Mute Swans. On the other hand, based on the hisses, grunts and language that I can't produce on this site - "Mute" is a misnomer...:?

They also make the noise of incoming artillary, when they fly overhead, but that weird noise is cause by their feathers.
