Kawaupaka

 

Nikon D80, ISO 100, f8, 1/350 sec, 300mm efl, Capture NX 2

This little fella, "Kawaupaka" (aka. "Little shag"), was a complete poser as he dried his feathers in the sun while keeping an eye on the bald guy with the camera.

Spike and sting

 

Nikon D80, ISO 200, 1/60 sec, f16, 277 mm efl, Capture NX 2

What wonderful design this thistle has; seed pod thoroughly protected by an array of the sharpest spikes possible, yet the flower is hoisted well above the danger where Mr Sting can feed and get covered by pollen.

Morning mist on the first hole

 

Canon PowerShot A590 IS, ISO 80, f5.5, 1/400 sec, 140mm efl, Capture NX2

I was doing a recon' for a job at the local golf course - that's why I was early, thats why I was only carrying the little Canon. But even a little point and shoot can do pretty well - in the full size picture, you can see the sunlight catching the dew-drops on the grass by the first tree! As someone else has said, "the best camera is the one you have with you".

Waiting ...

 

Nikon D80, ISO 200, f8, 1/1500 sec, 450mm efl, Capture NX2

Taken today on Mill Road in Oxford. Just for a change, we have had a lovely three days of sunshine and perhaps a little more to come (and a few more pictures).

Balancing act

 

Nikon D80, ISO 400, f8, 1/1000 sec, 315mm efl, Capture NX2

This White-faced Heron, must have posed for me for close on half an hour - at least long enough to shoot nearly 200 frames!
