How Many in one Shot?

Post by PrimitiveTim » February 10th, 2015, 4:34 pm

How many species have you got in one shot? More points for tighter frame. I took this the other day as they foraged along the edge of a marsh and they all crossed as I snapped away.

I suspect I have rafts of duck shots with 4-5 species and I know I have some shorebird shots that must have 5 species or more in them.

Here's 4 species - Black-tailed and Bar-tailed Godwits, Curlew Sandpiper and Great Knot.

Of course, if you back off far enough..... :lol: .....I know this shot has at least Little Pied Cormorant, White-faced Heron, South Island Oystercatcher, Bar-tailed Godwit, Red Knot, Black-billed Gull and White-fronted Tern. I'm sure there are some Sharp-tailed Sandpipers and possibly a Wrybill or two in there.

I might have a hummingbird feeder shot with 4 or 5 species visible from Ecuador. Have to look.

Maybe a different challenge, but I like to try to get comparative shots of closely related/similar species together.

I spent a long time stalking to get this shot showing two South Island vs. Variable Oystercatchers side by side in the same pose.

Black-bellied and Fulvous Whistling-Ducks -

Ross's and Snow Geese (Blue and White) -

and a side by side comparison of a big and "small" Albatross (Gibson's Wandering and Buller's). I took about 200 shots of fly-by albatross to finally get this one side by side.

A caracara and a Peregrine is pretty cool. In fact, a photo of a Peregrine with any (live) bird is pretty impressive. I wouldn't think many birds would tolerate a peregrine around.

Dang a caracara and peregrine, two of my favorites. I saw my first peregrine the other day. It was pretty awesome!

I see 12 storks, about 10 Great Egrets, at least 2 White Ibis, 1 snowy Egret, a grackle, and what looks to be a glossy Ibis.
