Some great shots there guys

I've been getting up at 5am and walking over 2 miles to a spot I know to try to get a decent Red Kite shot. The problem with these birds is the huge wing span, once the sun gets up they are in their own shadow and the light is wrong. There is only a short window of opportunity when the sunlight gets above the tree-tops, but still with enough up-light on the bird.

Today I finally got one worth the wait, albeit about a 50% crop - I'm still going to keep at it for a full-framer though . (I actually got 6 full frame shots earlier on but the sunlight hadn't risen enough for them to be usable )

Thanks Paul, I value the comment. This group of flowers was tucked away at the back of a garden in a Manor House just down the road from me. Made a bit of a schoolboy error and left a high ISO set on the camera.
I normally shoot at around 100 with assisted flash. Not a clue how they were turning out but went with the histogram for basic exposure.
Topaz is well worth having. A good tip

Been watching the Red Kites and Buzzards war over territory the last few days.
Plagued with cloudy days and farm-plough dust so not great light but caught this particular skirmish rather nicely.

The Kites are nesting and defending their area ferociously against repeated attacks by up to 8 Buzzards at a time!
A second pair of Kites got called in today as reinforcements, 4 Kites and 8 Buzzards all circling at once right over my head, and too much zoom on my (prime) lens to pan out and capture it!

That Topaz seems to be working fine for you.
The Hellebores in our garden don't look anywhere near as good as that!

Good work
