Reflections – Bird pictures with Tamron150-600mm

I was walking in the park and I sat down at a bench to just enjoy the sunny weather and to have a bit of break. I turned around to check out the little lake that was behind me. There I saw a little bird that came very close to where I was sitting.

I took up my camera and aimed. I was using Canon 70D and the lens was a Tamron 150-600 mm version 1. I got the following pics of the bird called Wagtail.

As I continued sitting on the bench and relaxing there came other birds that wanted to drink the water. So I felt I was lucky that the birds were coming to my spot instead of me trying to come to theirs.

I call this segment reflections since all the birds have a reflection in the water.

This bird is called a Fieldfare


A pigeon also need some water

All of the pictures above are taken at 600 mm with a aperture of f8. The picture below is taken at 350 mm with a aperture of 7.1. The reson I mostly take at f8 is because in order to get pretty sharp pictures with Tamron 150-600 you need to be at this aperture.

Talk about having something at the tip of your tongue. A fun picture of a nuthatch eating seeds, it was not easy for it to get a seed. The nuthatch kept dropping the seeds and had to try again to pick one up. The picture is taken with a Canon 6D and Tamron 150-600mm.

Crested Hawk Eagle – Tamron 150-600mm

Close up of a crested Hawk Eagle from India

The pictures below is Taken with a Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm. I took this picture in south of India. The Crested Hawk Eagle blend in with the environment so they can sometimes be hard to see. I was lucky enough to see this kind of bird twice.


Red-whiskered Bulbul and Tamron 150-600mm

Time to fly

The picture is taken in India. The little Red-whiskered Bulbul were about to fly but I managed to take this picture just before it took of. The Tamron 150-600mm lens was used with Canon 70D and it makes a great combination if you ask me. Tamron makes a nice smooth background.

Eremitibis – ever seen anything like this?


This funny looking creature is a Eremitibis. It is endangered and there are only 220 left in this world. I managed to get a front picture and it really do look funny. It looks like it had a rough day. It is not the most beautiful birds I have seen, but it looks very interesting.

This picture is taken at a focal length of 483mm, f9 and exposure time of 1/500 sec and I used a Canon 70D. You are welcome to comment, if you have any questions.

Pictures with Tamron 150-600mm – part 2

Orangutan mom and baby

I like to take pictures of monkeys because they show a lot of personality. Many gestures and expressions are the same as the humans. The picture above is one of them. The Orangutan mom and her baby is having a moment, bonding time with each other. It looks so effortless and peaceful. This picture is taken indoors and through a thick window, still the Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens manage to capture the moment.  This picture is taken handheld.

Orangutan thinking a lot

Orangutan male is looking different from the female. It is often bigger and the face looks different as well. This picture above was taken from about 20 meters away. With the Tamron zoom lens you will be able to come pretty close and you will get more natural pictures since you do not have to disturb the animal when you stand further away. This picture is taken handheld.
