Been out of the loop for quite some time now thanks to my studies. Today I managed to finally go out and try my luck at our friends around the neighborhood. After hours of walking and occasional diving into the ground and sand, I got the following. I would say it was a relatively productive sortie, and it appears that our feathered friends are friendlier on this part of the globe.
The images were taken in Odaiba, Tokyo, a reclaimed piece of land connected to central Tokyo via the Rainbrow Bridge. All images taken using 40D and EF 400mm f/5.6L.
Having have to relearn the ropes, C&C's are most appreciated.
