Hello friends, last summer one day
with our friend Pierre (pierrefonds)
I have met him for a bird photo shooting.

That day Pierre lend me a 70-300mm lens
to try it, but it was only a AF lens and
with my Nikon D5100 to can autofocus
I need AF-S lenses, so with that lens
I was forced to go manual focusing.


From this bird I have another photo with
that lens, that I will post another time.

Photo shot from a footbridge
passing trough the marshes.

1/250s f/11.0 ISO800
135mm (35mm eq:202mm)

from the All About Birds website

A secretive bird of freshwater marshes,
the Virginia Rail most often remains hidden
in dense vegetation. It possesses many
adaptations for moving through its habitat,
including a laterally compressed body,
long toes, and flexible vertebrae.

Merci

Asbed

Asbed,

There he is! Stunning and with a snail or some piece of food in his beak! Well done...good colors. Water a little too blue, so did a WS.

Hello Asbed
exciting bird. Real nice with the light hitting the feathers. The red ambience on the beak is lovely and the effect of the water is nice too.
A pleasant view.
