A little story about Upupa epops
Firstly we show this bird with food on mouth but we couldn’t understand the reason ;D
Later on we show a couple of epops feeding the chicks in the nest that was done in a hole of a tree 8)
That was new to me!

Baeolophus bicolor - Tufted titmouse

Image rather soft probably due to 40°C temperature and resultant convection current on this slope. D850, AF-S ED 500 D. 1/200, f5.6.

In addition to the usual diet of this species (seeds, beetles, bugs, larvae and so on) this individual appears to find paper wasps delicious.

A Monticola Solitarious female back in June with z50 and 200-500 f 5.6 lens
I see now 200-500 is a very good lens :)

Thank you Kim, you manage to shoot a very nice little bird :)
How you find your little v1 shooting birds? Is there an evf?

Thanks Nasos,

The Nikon 1 V3 is quite good for birds if the light is sufficient (i.e. high shutter speed and not too high ISO). I have the optional EVF.

I've seen plenty of amazing moon shots with the Nikon 1, but this is one of the best wildlife shots I've seen with it.
For portability & results, why did they never develop this product line further???
Compared to the Z series, these were usably compact

Nice captures Nasos.
I love the shape in the second image (plus a hint of something in its bill?)
