Birds at Lotus Pond

Posted by

These are some of the birds I was talking of yesterday. If you sit there for a while you would see one of them diving and coming up with a nice piece of fish. I need to go there again to get some action shots.

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/400 second F/6.3 ISO 400 205 mm

Well this is different. Would love to know what kind of post-production techniques you are using on these black and white shots. They look fabulous.

It looks as if you arranged them on each branch for symmetry. Nice one. Looking forward for the action shot.

I'm telling you - you need the Canon 500mm IS lens - is is good for birds!!! This is a nice shot - those look like some exoctic birds (to what I am used to seeing here and in Atlanta)

I can buy a small bird house, with the same money as it would cost me the 500mm IS lens!

Hey Shuva, thanks for stopping by my site. In regards to larger photos, I'm afraid that the way my site is formatted means that I can only post photos of that width. However, as you may already know, you can simply click on each picture in order to see a full size version of it.
