    Nice capture of the female mallard take off Joel. But I believe your capture of the HB is a hatch year male....the (many) black spots (females are nearly all white w/little discoloration) are indicating the gorget area is transitioning to the iridescent (ruby) feathers....nice perch shot.

    I am having trouble with ID of this bird....not sure if it's Forster's or Sandwich Tern. Any experts out there that can help?

    I had trouble getting a sharp image as I was in a boat and the water was a little rough. Making matters worse I could not get very close without the bird flying farther away to a new perch. I had to use the 2X converter to get this image.

    When you go out to shoot one thing, another opportunity comes along.

    New Holland Honeyeater

    1/1600, ISO1250, f5.6 @ 300mm

    The background is golden flowers in bloom. In general, native plants in Australia don't flower to the season but to the rainfall, and we have and a little rain lately.

    Canon EOS 7D, EF-S 10-22, EF 24-105L, EF 50 f1.2L, EF 70-300L, 430EX.

    Simple white dove shot. This was taken with the 24-105, though. Not my usual bird lens.
