p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Dutch Waterbirds part 2


Busy with a project waterbirds as you could see in another posting. Because I want to do this on eye level there are some difficulties. When you lay down and looking through the viewfinder you wil hurt your neck after some time because you have to look for birds while looking over your eqiupment. When you use an angle finder you sit on your knees and lean on your elbows. Still hurting your neck to look above your eqiupment. but your elbow's and knees are used the way they normally not get used for and these are completly blue at the moment. I could not do it another day and the light was better than yesterday :-( today. But beside the pain I may not complain :-) . The 3 days I have done this have given me so many super shots that I am looking forward to another day with this light within 2 weeks or so :-).

At the bottom I include 1 photo from the interior from the birdhide :-)

1 - Great Crested Grebe






2 - Coot






3 - Gadwall male






4 - Gadwall female






5 - Greylag goose






6 - Eurasian Wigeon






7 - view birdhide 2 by 2meter and 1 meter height

An excellent set Walter. All the birds look great, and I always like to see how the shots were taken. 1 is my pick for the pose ~ Ron

Beautiful set Walter

I have to go with # 1 as that's always been one of my favorite birds since I was a little girl in Sweden.

Too bad I don't have a single acceptable photo of them.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful shots,

Great set, Walter.
The first is my favorite but I really like them all.
You even made a common Greylag goose uncommonly beautiful.

Great shots Walter. Getting down low might be painful but really worth it for the quality of shot. Well done.
