Birds

I also photograph our beautiful native birds, there will be a bias towards the Tui, because it’s my favourite New Zealand bird. Enough words, now the birds…

  1. Sandy i especially love the first shot of the Tui on the Flax flower. Stunning shot.So sharp and the bokeh ! Was this the Canon 400mm lense that you had for sale ? I would give up Scotch for one of those.( maybe) Way out of my budget.I hope you still post you photographs on your web place now that you are not posting on Instagram. Must admit was stunned this morning when i saw your last Insta post mate.

    1. Hi mate

      Actually I’m pretty sure that was with my previous L series 70-300mm lens. It was fantastic but I wanted the extra reach the 100-400 gave me. I’ve sold all that stuff now and have a little Olympus OM-D thing with a walk around lens. I’ll still take the odd photo but I’m just not in much of a Photographic mood these days. Cheers for the support though
