C&C welcome.

Ooo another great otter shot. I love otters.

The ducks running is a classic as i-Berg says. you could sell that to a greetings card company!

They are all very sharp and I've enjoyed looking at them. Thankyou.

What lens did you use?

Thank you for C&C.

Gwyn: K20D + DA*60-250

Btw, on that running ducks photo you can see AF speed of this lens , sharpness peak is behind white duck, somewhere in line with black duck in the back, AF-C focusing was done using central point aiming at white runner (well trying to keep it at contrasty part).

I really like the picture of the owl. Great detail. How far away were you and what settings did you use.....I'm jealous....I mean curious. LOL

A great set of pictures there Piotro. The Otter is fantastically cute and I really like the first lion shot (number seven) - very sharp and a handsome animal. I have a soft spot for Ducks so like shot number three - they look like they are Indian Runner Ducks

JBmagician: I was really near this bird, and that Eagle Owl is quite a big wht helps, settings were: f/5.6, 1/250sec, 800 ISO, 250mm.

Matwhittington: spot on, you are right, these are Indian Runner Ducks.

The ducks are a giggle. I like the otter - scope for a crop there?
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

The first two are exceptionally good photographs.

Cropped to 1:1, hence around 43% in width cut off and 15% in height cut off the original.
