When I moved in into my new home I noticed a bunch of Yellowhammers that would visit my backyard practically every day. Usually 3-4 at a time, once I saw a group of 10. They must have stayed in the close neighbourhood for the winter. Here’s my first session with them on 17 of March.
Few shots from late March of 2016. Not much to show. This is the only photo of Common Chiffchaff that I was able to capture so far, of documentary value to me. ;) Same with Long Tailed Tit.
So around two weeks I finally bought Canon 100-400 mm lenses. I've been thinking about it for years, now I am a very happy owner. I already did some trial runs in the field and I am so pleased with results! Lenses are sharp and the image they produced is great. Check out some of the photos. Also 2x extender is on the way, yay!
For the start - I would like to wish all of you many wonderful moments during 2015 year, take the best of it! For myself I wish more courage to reach my goals and, of course, many new good photos. :)
Today I would like to present my Sister's cat - Luna. I spent some time with her during Christmas. Does not look like, but she has been taken from the dumpster. Must have had a classy father since she does not look like a regular cat. Does not like to be touched and not really interested in being a model, but she was patient with me for a while. A big ball of fur...
The Hooded Crow (Corvus cornix) (also called hoodiecrow) is a Eurasian bird species in the crow genus. Widely distributed, it is also known locally as Scotch crow, Danish crow, and corbie or grey crow in Ireland. Found across Northern, Eastern and Southeastern Europe, as well as parts of the Middle East, it is an ashy grey bird with black head, throat, wings, tail and thigh feathers, as well as a black bill, eyes and feet. Like other corvids it is an omnivorous and opportunistic forager and feeder.
Captured in Wrocław ZOO last Sunday. :)
