    Been a bit of a dull day today, weather been rubbish (again!) but as Hoppy wanted to drive me around who was I to say no?

    Well I sold my macro lens at the weekend thinking I'd never use it, so what did I do today?

    I used a 600mm lens for a photo of a wild flower!

    CLICK IMAGE FOR HIGH RES

    but better than that, I saw my first ever Kingfisher today!!

    its that little blue and orange thing on the branch in the middle of the shot.
    you know there are times when I wish I had a 2000mm lens

    and here is a crop

    probably one of the worst photos I've ever taken but I don't care I've seen a Kingfisher :mrgreen:

    And then I thought I saw a River Otter but it turned out just to be Hoppy :confused:

    Too bad your 'worst ever' photo is better than virtually every bird picture I've ever taken!
    I really like your 600mm macro :) It's lovely!
    And hello there Hoppy![​IMG][​IMG]

    Have you ever seen MY one and only photo of the one and only kingfisher I have ever seen? Have you?
    I doubt it (it is on the blooper section somewhere, and in there FOR A REASON!).
    For if you had, you would pat yourself on the shoulder for getting such a GOOD one here!
    Myself -- I am now green with envy! :mrgreen:

    Sheesh, that's one of your worst pictures? Pffft. Looks pretty good to me. It's a pretty little thing. (The bird that is.) And Hoppy looks pretty happy for someone who's had to lug that huge lens around

    Can anyone help LP with some hints on concealment(sp?) and camouflage, as I think he is a little confused!

    and nice capture of the kingfisher. I too only saw one in my life. Got a pic of it too, a rather sucky one though.
