    Sorry for the broken Flickr link above. Here's the pic again:

    And just for fun, here's a shot of Chinese Golden Pheasant - 1/160, /4.5, ISO 1250, 150 mm. Used the pop-up flash on my GH2.

    It is amazing how the weather in the UK has turned around in just a few days. On Tuesday I was photographing snow and today I was photographing birds in my backgarden in brilliant sunshine.

    All the best.

    Here's a picture I took recently of a seagull squawking at the humans (and other birds, I suppose) nearby! Seagulls can be annoying, but I do find them interesting. And they are great fliers....

    Despite professing to have abandoned m43rds I nevertheless have kept my GH-2 and 100-300 for exactly this type of work.

    Nice shot. I recognise the Spinnaker Tower over Gunwharf Quays but where is it shot from?

    It is taken from the beach on Hayling Island, mid-way between Eastoke Corner and Sandy Point.

    I know it well! A really nice shot Louis.

    In my opinion the Panny 100-300 just takes the prize from the new Oly mZuiko Mk 2. It is a half stop faster too, not that makes much difference with and OMd EM5.
    Cheers, Dave

    Here's a shot of a Sandhill Crane I took the other day at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary near Vancouver, BC. Was with my GH2, at ISO 400, 300mm, f/8 and 1/1000.

    The bird let me get pretty close (well, really close - at one point he was eating from my hand).

    Thought I'd bump this thread with a picture of a Rufous hummingbird I took at a local nature park near Vancouver, BC. I wish I would have shot with a higher shutter speed, but I didn't realize until too late I had forgotten to dial it up from 1/300.

    GH2 - /5.6 300.0 mm, 1/1300, ISO 400.

    GH-2 and 100-300 - this Robin has been serenading our back garden for a number of days.

    Fox in the garden - a second opportunity to use the 100-300 on the same day. Incidentally, these were all shot at iso3200 and speeds as low as 1/60th as they were shot just after sunset in the thickening dusk.

    Despite my disatisfaction with m43rds I can't quite kick the habit of the GH-2 and the 100-300. I wouldn't want to print these above 10x8 but as you say very good for high iso and low speed.

    Thanks for the compliment. But no, it was cropped a bit! I usually don't get that lucky when framing birds, especially when they are flying...

    Here's a picture of an elk that I took on the way home from Edmonton to Jasper. Had to walk in a bit to see a group of Elk resting near the bank of a river. Not the best angle for lighting, but it was nice to see a group in a more natural setting, rather than seeing some by the side of a highway.

    Hawk and Squirrel

    This red-shouldered hawk was sitting on our back fence for awhile



    An active squirrel seemed to see the hawk



    Surprisingly, the squirrel started to cross the fence and managed to get pretty close



    Then the hawk looked his way



    The shots were taken with a GX7 and the Panasonic 100-300 lens. The last shot was at 100mm, and that's as wide as I could get without retreating back into the house.
