Good shot Pam, the focus is a bit soft on the Pukeko's head, but it's still a good capture.

The new camera is working well - so are you! Good shot of the little fellow. What big toes he has...

A graceful image Pam with excellent title.

Very good Pam.
Your new camera and lens works fine.
It's a bit soft, but it you add some USM to sharp it.
Good composition and colours.
Well done.

Cute bird in funny pose, Pam. I hope you send us more pictures from your new cam :-)

Pam, Great title, cute little guy! It's odd look makes this photo special. My only comment would be that perhaps since you hand-held this shot it might've benefited from a slightly faster shutter-speed since your subject appears to be in motion. Well done!!

Salut Pam!
Belle image de cet oiseau en action.
Léger flou généré par le mouvement du sujet. Un temps d'exposition plus rapide (1/500) aurait favorisé une meilleure netteté.
Merci

Great action shot! He's kind of cute!

Never even heard of the Pukeko. Shows you how informative this site is. Thanks for sharing

Hi Pam, the new camera and lens shows in your work. Its great! Nice and sharp. Nice POV and pose. The black handled very well. Nice job. I'd love to see the adult bird. What a critter!
