6400 again

Common Crossbill

To give my poor shoulder a rest I’ve been using the 600 f/11 the last 2 months (as opposed to the 500 f/4). But it was so dark in the park this morning that I borrowed my old 100-400L M1 from my wife as I knew f/11 would be unusable. I still had to use ISO 6400 though.

Amazing what noise reduction software can do these days (at least with small low-res images like these).

These were taken in a park to the east of town. Crossbills are everywhere this autumn.

  1. Sorry about the shoulder Stuart. Would be ecstatic to have taken such shots of Crossbills any time any placeā€¦.previously your Jay is Eurasian but is there a Japanese Jay in Hokkaido?

  2. All the jays in Japan are ‘Eurasian Jay’ but there are 4 subspecies; the one in Hokkaido is different from the southern ones.
