p.1 #1 · Godwits and first Redshank (12)


I finally took the time to work on my back log. I have no idea where all the hours go lately.
All images were taken 3 weeks ago with Nikon D7000 and 300 f4.
Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.

1) First three Godwit images are nearly full frame.






2)






3)






4) Missed his toes but love that open beak.






5) This guy/girl landed 12 meters in front of me and started to walk towards me.
Unfortunately he approached my safety zone and I had to fly off.
Vertical crop from horizontal image with the hight being slightly cropped too.






6)






7)






8)






9) My first Common Redshank!
Unlike Godwits they keep more distance. Much like Lapwings.
To capture them well I think something like 500mm is needed. These are 50% crops.






10)






11)






12) And another Godwit in the grass image.

Congrats Chris! Great job on these. The second and third shot work best for me because of the lit faces and the catchlights (the opposite of the first one)
The light work very well in the Common Redshank IF shots
Enjoyed the set

4,9,10 (if I don't write that first I soon forget ) are tops for me. I do like the open billed godwit despite it being toeless. A very nice series Chris.

Great set Chris. Love the ones of the godwit exerting his territorial rights.

Thank you Dorian ....... dutch football team? Don't know what you are talking about.
Lets see, a team with world class players are able to loose three matches in a competition ..... no, still don't get it.

This set has some real winners, Chris. Good action, good light, and even mouth open squawking-while-flying images.
I also like the godwit walking toward you (before you had to fly away). Made me smile.

Congrats on the redshank, Chris. I've never seen one myself. Great light and action in the godwits too.
