    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 3/10/11 "Something Fishy"

    This week I want to see a gallery of bird images that also contain a fish. I'm guessing we'll see some Gulls, a few Terns, some Kingfishers perhaps. Look forward to your contributions

    Shot at work (Sydney Airport) with the 400D with 100-400 @ 400mm ISO100, 1/500th f/8, this juvenile Australasian Gannet ended up losing the rather healthy sized bream after trying to rotate it for consumption. The lighting was in the worst possible position, but I think the result is still acceptable. It's quite heavily cropped too.

    Here's a triptych of an Australasian Darter with quite a decent catch! I forgot what the fish was...

    I thought I'd share a pelagic image, this is not the best image, taken with my first kit all on Auto

    Posted on the previous forums incarnation, but I think worthy of being reposted here.

    Little Terns (Sterna albifrons) at Sydney Airport in a courtship display November 09. It was a 39 degree day with a slight westerly blowing, but when the lady asks for a feed, it's best to keep her happy!

    EOS 400D 100-400L @ 310mm ISO200, 1/1250, F5.6. Slight cropping, USM

    We had no attempts at nesting last year and the usual migrants have been somewhat absent this year, but fingers crossed we might see a few arrive in the next month or so.

    Default Black-necked Storks fishing (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus)

    A double hook-up!! Watched this pair fishing for eels on a drying lagoon on the Townsville Towncommon back in Nov 2007. After about half an hour the score was 3 to Mum and 3 to dad. The young birds joined in later but did not have the skills of mum and dad.
