  4. I've actually been out shooting quite a lot the last week. I've also loaded my printer with canvas on a roll which is a new and exciting experience.

    The Terns are fast birds but I managed to get a couple of shots of one hunting the other day. Unfortunately I did not get a shot when it dove into the water.
    Canon 5D Mark IV, Sigma 300mm f/4

    I'm also making collages of the kids. Printed onto canvas and will be mounted shortly.

  6. Went to see The Handsome Family at Metropool Hengelo (NL) some time ago.
    Photo's only during the first 3 songs (venue restictions)
    If they play near you, go see them, and say hi from me.
    If you want to know what they sound like go to
    A audio recording of the show in Hengelo. The other hobby :)

  13. I find these quite impressive as, if I so much as look at a Grackle, it's off like a shot. I rarely have time to bring my camera up to shooting position.

  14. Thank you, Dave.

    There are two tricks that I use. One is to park myself on a stool, near the point of a lot of historical action. These shots were around a field of cattails, infested with blackbirds, such as grackles and red-winged blackbirds. The other trick is to raise my rig slowly. (If you use a tripod, don't swing it around fast). Don't expect action until at least 15-minutes after taking position. I invest two-hour slugs to get shots like those and this:
