Wildlife (mostly birds)

Post by JochenM » Mon Nov 30, 2020 10:26 am

Seems I haven't posted in this section in quite a while. I know some people here enjoy some wildlife as well, so here you have some shots taken by yours truly over the last few months. Hope you like it! :)

Thanks for looking.

Oh Jochen, you don't know how much these cheered me up :bow2

Look at the beautiful sunlight hitting the flying Mallards and the sunlight refraction causing the purple in their speculum :hamster: the wonders of nature

Fabulous!

Hi Jochen,

Very good images and I enjoyed very much the one of the two flying ducks. Impressive sharpness and frozen movement :shock: :shock: :shock:
