Just having a drink and the camera at my side watching the birds in the marina.

It's a tough life Michael, but somebody has to do it.

Keep up the good work.

If I might ask, what camera and lens are you using for these shots?

I use a Nikon D300 and most of these have been done either with a 105-300mm macro / zoom or a 800mm tele

I have put up a bird feeder just outside of the marina office and it has gotten rather popular by both birds and marina staff. Thing is, they don't get as much work done now as they spend a fair bit of time looking at the fuzzy crowd   :)











I went into the office this morning to have a cup of coffe and as I had the camera with me, it would have been rude not to use it.

Nice to see someone, "Shooting" Birds and ducks with a camera rather than a Shot-gun. Great photos too. I have no problem with shooting for food, but just for the hell of it?  Nup!   :wave:

Well, the snow is almost melted and the sun came out with a nice bit of light this morning, so I grabbed the camera and went for a walk around the pond.
