This afternoon, I had a great time with those little mammals …I wanted to photograph them amongst wild flowers…It`s a good start.
Every year I try to photograph a species of bird that it would be impossible for me to do. Because of my location and of the difficulty of approaching these birds.
This year, I wanted to photograph a species of very shy birds. The sandgrouse. It`s easy enough to watch sandgrouse in flight . You just have to go to Spain or France …you will see them, but it will be just a glimpse. I wanted to be very close to watch and photograph them. For this I went in Spain…I will write a review about this trip as I think that the Spanish curse has now finally been lifted…
Here are a few portrait
Male and female black bellied sandgrouse
Pin tailed sandgrouse, male and female
When I saw this male for the first time I was flabbergasted! I could not believe those colours…
Another recce. I was after hare in corn…but came a barn owl….
The barn owl was about 6/7 metres off the ground…on a dead tree…I was about 80 to 100 metres away and the bird did not seem to be worry.
500mm and 1.4
500mm and 2x slight crop
500mm and 2 time converter, heavy crop, Still 30mg file…
The picture quality taken with new 2 time converter with the new lens (Mk II LENS) is amazing…
all the pictures bellow were taken in my garden….Everybody has got a garden. My garden is not very big, but there is a lot of activity at the moment….It does not have to be sexy to be beautiful….
There is a song thrush feeding young
Young starling are easy to photograph…
Adult are a bit more wary
I like this adult in the long grass.
