    Well done Greg. It's nice to have one being waited on. Try a faster shutter speed like 1250 - 2000 to freeze the wings. Very good IQ though for 500.

      Didn't want to freeze the wings Isac, it's called implied motion. Getting that balance between a sharp head and a blur on the wings is what I've tried to capture and I was happy with what I got.

      Sorry. I should have known that.

    Achieved what you wanted I think Greg. Would have been better without the baby on the right blocking the parent but you can't always get them to play perfectly I guess.

      It all happens in the blink of an eye, impossible to get without either burst or frame capture from a video clip.

      The set of three works for me as it shows the incoming parent feeding both fledglings. A story telling compilation rather than a portraiture.

      It's the type of photography I enjoy.

      It's the little things!

      Cheers, Greg C.

        You might like this one better.
        I took it some time back and it was featured in a display of Bird Photography a couple of months back.

            The first 3 definitely tell a story Greg.
            That last one is outstanding.

              Love that last one.

                Thanks all... I like a bit of a challenge with wildlife. After many years of underwater photography, Iíve semi retired from that and looking towards getting my kicks from the land and air based subjects.
                It's the little things!

                Cheers, Greg C.
