Having just dined on fresh pigeon this female cleaned her beak on the long grass and then let her dinner go down with a 30 minute rest which she needed after being harassed by the smaller male who was also hungry. These two birds rarely get within camera range so the picture is NOT what I would like to get, using a 300-800mm Sigmonster at 800mm with a 1.4 extender this is as good as it gets (with me at the controls), any advice on how to improve these shots over a distance of several hundred feet would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks to all who have voted and commented/advised on my pictures since joining EPZ are very much appreciated, I have learned a great deal from this warm and friendly community, again thanks to all.
Cheer up, spring is here bringing with it many photo opportunities, we may soon be able to discard a layer or two.
