I was always a little worried about these window feeders and the birds impacting the glass by mistake.

Nice picture though.

Love that deer pic, superb sense of movement with the splashing water.

Muntjac back today, looking a bit rough, not sure if missing horn is shedding or fighting, but looking at the rest of it probably the latter.

A few from Woburn Safari Park.

I can't decide about these, I think the subjects good but they're all a bit soft (moving car, moving wolf, etc). I picked my 3 favourite here but more on Flickr.

Rather a lot of Gulls on my local patch at the weekend, I saw Common Gulls, Lesser Black-back Gulls, Herring Gulls and Black-headed Gulls in the area and a very large flock in the air over the meadow:

On paper, that shot shouldn't work, but it does, very well

Thanks!

I just set up my D50 on a tripod outside the window, then sat inside the room looking out for about an hour or two and whenever a bird landed I triggered a string of shots with the remote shutter release. I had to remember to keep taking a shot every 9 minutes otherwise the remote control setting goes back to manual!

Loads and loads of wasted shots - but who cares as long as one or two come out ok!

Shot on manual focus, and shutter priority set pretty fast.

Nice! Haven't seen Siskins for aages.

Still some Waxwings around, saw seventeen feeding at the local reserve in town today but wasn't easy to get pics of them in the dim cloudy conditions. Think I need to adjust the colour in these too, they look a bit washed out looking at them again...







The close-ups were taken from across the other side of the river and cropped in quite a lot.

Cheers Arthur - was good to catch up with some more Waxwings before they leave. Has been an amazing winter for them, there have been tonnes of them in Essex with flocks of hundreds seen around the county!

Another pic from yesterday, just the resident female Blackbird in my garden waiting for some food - photographed with my 90mm macro:



and the Collared Dove came down hoping not to miss out on a feed too:



He's got some funny feathers on his neck - hadn't noticed those before!

Wow a lot of detail on those Fozzybear
Really like those wolf photos too Ragnarak, good poses, looks scary in the first one.

Took this one a couple of months ago but only just got round to uploading it, closest i've got to a heron before.

Cheers! They came out ok considering how low the light was in that corner of the garden, I had to use ISO2000 to keep the shutter speed up and so they're a bit noisy but the D300 does a pretty good job at handling high ISO noise.

Nice Heron - I never have much luck getting close to the ones here, they're very nervy birds!
