Marazion and Drift, No New Faces

Had a short afternoon out.  Quick visit to Marazion but it was rather windswept, spotted one Bittern.  Due to the wind I decided to pay a visit to Drift where the light was ok and sheltered from the wind also, bonus. No new faces but did try the 600mm telephoto minus teleconverter (just prime lens) to see if overall sharpness increased any and I wasn't disappointed see below.

Black necked Grebe, shaking himself dry. Some may not like this image because of the head blur but I do, I think the motion adds to the overall image/action

Goosander, this is such a hard bird to photography technically, white body dark, head. Would be easier if the distance wasn't so far off.

Hybrid Goose at Drift.

The Black Necked Grebe taken with the 600mm lens without converter and canon 7D body, this looks good enlarged

Agree, the BN Grebe image is stunning when viewed full screen. Excellent set of images. Just goes to show you get what you pay for with photography.
