22nd November 2008
Together with my wife, we stopped at one of my favorite patch with lots of Wandering Whistling Ducks late this afternoon and the reward ?
Wahahah male eclipse Garganey with the female ! But it was too far for getting the best pictures with my kit so i have decided to used extreme magnification and this is the best advantage of digiscoping compared with 600mm DSLR lens for record shots :p
The duck was digiscoped with Nikon Fieldscope ED82 with 30x eyepiece x 3x optical zoom (24mm in digital format = 108mm in 35mm film format) of my Fujifilm F31d = 3240mm !
Pictures was sharpened with Nikon Capture NX2
Other birds seen around :
- Common Sandpiper
- Great Egret
If weather permitting tomorrow, hope can get better pictures with my friend Ck hehehe :)
