A few more "New Camera" results

So far the new camera, while a bit more complicated, an 100% success. The Nikon D750, coupled with my Nikon 80-400 is turning into a realm winning combination. It is quieter faster, much larger format...just about everything I have been looking for in a camera.

Last weekend I went out to the tidal flats at the west end of La Paz, in search of the Mangrove Warbler. I had seen one a few weeks ago, but it was not fully in it's spring plumage. This time, when I finally tracked them down, they were in their Sunday best!!

As you can probably guess, with me hanging out in the tidal flats, there were lots of wading birds......Yellow-crowned, and Black-crowned Night Herons, Reddish Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Greater Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Little Blue Herons, Tri-colored Herons...just to name a few of the major players out on the beach!

Here is a Black-crowned, flying by...

The ever regal Great Blue Heron...

The beautiful brilliant white Greater Egret

The Snowy Egret, just dancing around like crazy....

There White Ibis like this one, as well as White-faced Ibis...

The Yellow-crowned Night Herons, were out during the day, and having a crab feast..

  1. Nice work and good choice of camera and lens. I recently picked up a Nikon D7200 and a 38-200 lens, more lenses
