Bhandup in the rain

I did a second trip to Bhandup today. It was drizzling throughout.

Mostly whiskered terns and prinias but all of the birds inside the vegetation.

Tried a few slower shutter speed shots in the rain. Still getting used to the 200-500mm. I tend to forget that I have a zoom.

Group AF worked really well for the flight shots.

The mundane is “Awesome”

Firstly wish you all a very Happy New Year !

 

As usual I woke up early today to the screech of parakeets , on a wire outside my window.

I decided to take out the old faithful and try a few balcony bird shots.
