What a lovely boy

As soon as I had set up my camera at the brook this afternoon, Bluey and Mrs K flew onto the perch together. I think I shall call Mrs K Betsy because I can't keep calling her Mrs K. I just loved this shot with his wing up and a huge fish in his beak. I only spent an hour at the brook but it was a very successful day and it made me very happy. Today I thought I would bring my 80-400mm lens out as I haven't used it much since I bought the 300mm prime with extenders and I am glad that I did because on the tripod, I don't have to carry it about so the weight and bulk don't matter. Perhaps I might get my 70-200mm out tomorrow as that never gets used and I keep wondering whether to trade it in.

Thanks for getting all 3 of my images on PP yesterday and for all your kind comments and Favs. It is always much appreciated.
Great shot with the wings spread out. Well timed.

Great shot. Tell me, are you happy with the quality using extenders on the 300mm lens? It sounds like it is a weight issue plus.

@wenadee The 300 is a lovely little lens and with a x2 extender it's much smaller and lighter than the 80-400
