Silver Eye - Am I too early or too late for dinner..........? by 


This young Silver Eye is on the look out for a meal – it’s nice to see the youngsters of the older Silver Eyes coming around now. It has been so dry lately that they come looking for water also.
Location: My garden at Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

Panasonic, LUMIX – GH2 at 280mm, 100×300 lens, 1/400, f/8, iso160, manual.
From a single RAW image.

    I KNEW this was yours straight off! It is a typical signature shot, absolutely perfect in focus and timing and showing a beaut little bird to perfection.

  • Thank you for those wonderfully kind comments Peter – I can thank the 100 × 300 new lens for that, it blurs the background nicely, especially a bush or tree background.

    The whole composition is just perfect!
    This is postcard quality work!

  • Thank you so much John both for your wonderful comments and favourite. The Lumix GH2 with the 100 × 300 lens does certainly help.
