I thought I would post some of my bird photographs I have taken during my travels around the world. I am by no means a specialist bird photographer but I love nature and birds. I do not own the ideal bird lens, i.e. a 600mm or even a 400mm telephoto lens. I have a Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 and a Nikkor 70-300mm ƒ3.5-5.6 for my Nikon D700 and D90 cameras. I have a Nikkor 1.7X tele-convertor which I use with the 70-200mm lens. I also have a Nikon 1 V2 with a 30-110mm lens which is the equivalent to 81-297mm on a 35mm. I also have the adaptor for the V2 which allows me to mount any Nikkor F-mount lens. This makes my Nikkor 70-300mm a 189-810mm ƒ3.5-5.6, 35mm equivalent. I wanted to illustrate to the average travelling photographer that you can come home with some good nature shots even though you don’t have the ideal equipment. One of the photographs was taken with a Nikon Coolpix compact camera.
