Off the twig

I managed to catch a few birds as they left their perch.


Storm Bird — Eastern Koel

I’ve been hearing this bird for weeks now, and only catching the faintest of glimpses of it as is sneaks from tree to tree. This morning I managed to get a rear shot from 100 metres away.


But, this afternoon a male and female were in the neighbours trees. I got a few shots of them before they moved again. I used my old Canon 40D and Sigma 18-250 mm lens, as it was already to go, and I didn’t want to risk the time it would take to kit-up the 70D.
