Odds and Ends

A few more shots from the weekend. The Lapwing fought over food during the freeze, life was very competitive. I think the beneficiaries were the Raptors with the amount of Lapwing, Thrushes and Golden Plover around, the Buzzard was diving on the Lapwing. I have been using the Nikon 300mm F2.8 Lens without the teleconverter and with the aperature wide open at f2.8. When shooting with the sun behind me I usually adjust the exposure compensation to -0,7 to -1.0. Please click on the image to enlarge


  1. Brilliant Lapwing shots, especially the flight shots. Your winter images are one of the best of all the blogs. Steve.

  2. Oh, these are beautiful shots! Love the last one with his wings spread out. Nice work!

  3. Well captured, the lapwing action shot is great.
