p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nictitating fish slayer | White throated KF


This one posed up nicely at a distance. Thankfully the extra reach of the 2x TC helped. 800mm f11 effective Slightly cropped for composition

Read more on the nicititating membrane on beings here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nictitating_membrane



Canon 40D, 400 f5.6 + 2x TC
ISO 1250, 1/1000, f11

The light was still harsh..but I guess one can't win them all

C&C sought please

Cheers,
Hayath

Beautiful bird

well done for in the middle of the day shot.

My one suggestion - - give the bird more space to look into on the left. JMHO

Cool looking bird and impressive IQ with the 2X... very well done.
I generally prefer images with the eye visible... what color is the eye of this KF?

Thanks much folks!

Lil,
The actual composition was slightly wider and had some space for the bird to look into. But the large/lighter leaves (see below) were slightly distracting to me. Agree this one's a little too tight

Kirk,
The eyes are the normal black...here's another shot of it in a different composition

i also like the second shot, he seems to be interacting more with you due to the head angle (and the eye!)

Thank you everyone for those kind comments and picks

I guess my excitement towards #1 was for getting the membrane, but yes #2 does have better engagement from the subject.

Both are very pleasing images, Hayath. Your intent to show the nicititating membrane of this beautiful bird is very successful and has its own merit
They both show very pleasant color and detail.
