A day of errors.............


A Japanese Green Pigeon just outside Hakodate late this afternoon...............




I woke up this morning to find my 7D had died. Luckily my wife lent me her 60D for the day.

I was showing Franck ( a French birder and on/off resident of Japan who I know from a while back) around some of the local sites. He wanted some Japanese Green Pigeon photos (the first ones ever by a frenchman he claimed!) so off we went to Shikabe but were thwated by fog. Up at Yakumo there were 4 fishing Ospreys but again it was floggy and misty.



We headed back to Hakodate to find it bathed in sunshine and we just had time to hot a beach near Kamiiso to see some Green Pigeons...........

Only BIFs and I couldn't really get used to the 60D so messed up most of the shots. I got a few nice ones though.



So Franck got his shots after all..............

I got home and got the bricked 7D ready to take to the camera shop (I got a 5 year warranty and it is up in 2 or so months)..................and then it started working again. Mysterious...............

  1. "Interesting re the 7D" - maybe reload the softwear. They are an attractive pigeon.

  3. Those pigeons in flight are really great - much more exotic than the doos here!

  4. Great JGP shots, as usual. As for cameras - sometimes like the computer, just turning it off and back on again can work wonders. (And I do so because that's the limit of my technical proficiency !)

    1. I tried it many times and then took the battery out and tried another but nothing happened. I gave up and later in the day removed the memory card and put a fifferent one in and hey presto it worked again............
