    Default Grey-Headed Gull - Bangweulu Swamps

    Think this one is also worthy of a spot on this sticky.
    Going through all the shots we have taken and nearly deleted this one.
    Maybe a good idea to leave the clean-up for another day

    I just love the eye detail. Glad you did not delete, but rather shared with us.

    Leon, I am using both the D90 and D300s
    Had the big lens on the D300 and 70-200 on D90
    Still strugeling with the D300s and dont like the picture colours.
    I downloaded custom picture settings last night and will experiment with them over the weekend. Planning to go out to Nsobe lodge on Sunday to shoot some birds, hopefully its nice and quiet.

    The 200-400 is just one of those lenses that is good on any camera.
    I stuffed up my D300s settings on the Shoebill trip and noted that "vivid" really makes green very green, but also took some nice ones like this one: http://www.outdoorphoto.co.za/forum/...5&ppuser=13454

    Bugs & Natio this Dusky is very similar to the Swamp Flycatcher we get in the Zambian swamps. Compare to the picture on pg 7 of this thread.

    Nice shots Bugs!

    Thanks Mike, Bertie,

    Today was really frustrating. 90% of my pics came out soft and when I spotted the pelican I only had my 300mmf4+1.4Tc with me.... AAAAARRRRGGGHHH.

    Anyway. a few cam out at least.

    Regards,

    And here is the last of my St Lucia trip....Its a good birding destination. The area offers good birding within spitting/ walking distance from the town. Would love to see the summer migrants in that area.

    Regards

    PS, Sorry, I posted the scarlet twice and dont know how to delete it
