Another day for the breakfast 7

Another day for the breakfast, they let me come closer day by day to take photo's.

Breakfast for the magpies is taken with a Manual focus 180mm F2,8 Ernst Leitz Wetzlar Elmarit lens on the small Fuji XE3 body.

This chunky lens + adapter is over 1,4 kilo (about 3 times the XE3 body) which makes it hard to handle in holding and taking aim and at the same time trying to focus and hold still.

Will be uploading some photo's in the days to come , from the 3 juvenile magpies that visit our garden on daily base for their breakfast.

Our Cat Putty finds it amusing to look at.

I like this shot best Len - it looks like the "boss" at work and his "minders" keeping watch!! :D

so true, but then within 20 meters of our house there are around 7 cats, who see and hear this magpie hotspot.

addults magpies are very protective for their young ones and their territorium, and not afraid, seen them attacking / chasing a falcon as a group.


love nature!
