    Great shot Jenny. What lens were you using?

  • thanks Jim, I have a newish nikon D700 but can’t afford the big lens for birds, so for this I pulled the sony out with the sigma 50 – 500mm. It’s big and heavy and slow but with the spot meter I can sometimes get a good shot.

    Nice work Jenny. I am down at Rainbow Beach via Fraser Island at the moment and there are Bee-eaters everywhere. I have been on the lookout for the Osprey. Hope to capture some at Fraser tomorrow. Cheers Gordon.

  • they are just the coolest birds, would love a nice lens for the nikon ……..

    I love this one Jenny!!
    I’ve found a group of Rainbow Bee-eaters just down the road from me, but unfortunately I don’t have the right lens to capture them. I’ve asked Santa to get me one, I wonder how I’ll go?…

  • I had to sneak up and crop heavily! they like Bon Jovi LOUD!! turn up the music and they;ll be there!!
