    Juvenile Cooper's Hawk - Central Park, NYC

    This young Cooper's Hawk was quite cooperative as it put on a display unsuccessfully chasing several squirrels in Central Park NYC. The photo was shot with a Canon 7d Mark II and a Canon 100-400 f4/L II lens.

    Bearded Bell Bird - Procnias averano

    Taken in Trinidad 2019 a difficult bird to see ,although its loud strange call can be heard over long distances in the rain forest where it lives in the canopy.

    A rare outing in 2018 but the Canon 600mm f4 Mk2 does the business!
  8. Graceful male Blackbird

    Graceful male Blackbird

    Garden birds from the hide, birds are in short supply in the Fens Cambridgeshire and the best way to get good shots are in the garden for me. Love trying to get their lives as close as possible, often around 4-8 feet, it's fun and I get to watch their silly ways. Common male Blackbird in early...

  12. Patience


    I observed this spider patiently monitoring a line of silk spread across a leaf, one leg on the thread as it remained motionless. I suspect that the spider was waiting for an insect to hit the thread before attacking it. The original photo was heavily cropped, and I am very impressed with the...

    A shot of a bird that never sits still...
  17. Sanderlings


    This cute group of Sanderlings was very curious and came within about two feet of me. It was especially entertaining to watch them follow the receding waves, then jump back as the waves came back in. I really like how the focus singled out the center bird.

    I am really amazed at the feather detail my Sigma 100-300 f/4 can produce, especially at short distances (this bird was ~3m away). No sharpening at all has been done to this photo!

    This is certainly one of the most interesting birds from the trip, and an odd-looking one at that!

    Brown-Crested Flycatcher

    Sorry for being so late in updating my gallery...anybody else such a procrastinator? These are some from a trip to American southwest (AZ, NM, up to CO) over the summer. More to come...
  25. Wigeon


    A female taking to the air. Every time I post I seem to be apologising for my lack of contributions to the Forum. This shot was one of only a few taken in October, so not a lot of new bird images I'm afraid.
