    If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. And if you talk about fish to a starving man then you are a consultant.

    Nothing wrong with those! I have also not been interested in it, still not, but I am not seeing it as a challenge to get some good shots. I know of a bird hide here in our reserve guess I will be trekking out there soon.

    They are brilliant Simon.

    If that is what you can achieve without taking any interest, goodness knows what you'll achieve once you start trying!!!

    Difficult to tell the size, looks like a Francolin (I would gues the Natal Francolin) mom with baby chick.

    If I have missed the size, then it could be a quail.

    David, that's a quail and it's chick (don't know which specific one though). I got a photo in Etosha of one with 3 little chicks.

    Maybe one needs to distinguish between shots of captive/tame birds and those that been photographed in the wild and the poster should give some back ground of the shots he is posting, ie where, when and quick camera settings

    I don't see any pictures of captive / tame birds here (only the black kite in mine was captive) but yeah you have a point.

    Who said it is only forum members that have spats now and then ?

    These Cape sugarbirds were photographed in Struisbaai using a Canon 1D Mk II with a 100-400mm Canon lens mounted on a Cullmann tripod. Normally for the photographs as in the previous post I use a 600 mm lens with a 1.4X converter (and a Toyota Hilux KZTE for stability). I try to (not always possible) to only shoot in good morning or afternoon light with a F-stop of 5.6 to 7.1 in order to blur the background.
