The subjects today fly but are not birds!! They are not something I spend a lot of time trying to get either!! They are usually seen and captured whilst I am out birding - very quick grab shots!! Therefore usually with a 50-500mm lens zoomed down a bit or even at 500mm!! No close focus!! They have all been captured over the last couple of months!! Thought I would share them with you!!

Thanks for your votes on the Ruff, Much appreciated as always

Have a great day

Bill

Waxwings are here the birds that come in huge quantities ( maybe1000 birds ) and eat the berries,and leave. It takes only maybe 30 minutes,and no rowanberrys visible any more!- Incredible! ---- Jukka.
