Yesterday's bird shots
Posted By: palmor, 06-22-2008, 04:55 AM

Hi all,
Here are a few shots from yesterday.

Yellow Warbler:

Pentax K20D ,Tokina 400mm f/5.6 AT-X
1/500s f/8.0 at 400.0mm iso400

This one is a little bit soft but that is expected at 400mm and 1/30s . This one SR wasn't locked in because he was moving so fast I pointed and fired. Even though it is soft I still liked it

Pentax K20D ,Tokina 400mm f/5.6 AT-X
1/30s f/8.0 at 400.0mm iso400

The next few are of a Great Blue Heron right at sunset. These where taken on a tripod

In this one he caught some type of snake or eel

Excellent stuff Palmor. I like both of the Yellow Warbler shots and the slight softness is not an issue. The colours and compositions are great.

The GBH series is very nice. can't beat sunset colours. The 2nd one is by far my favourite.

Well done palmor. Those birds can move at sub-shutter speeds for sure The colors and reflections in #4 do it for me. Nice series.

i really like the last photo, you exposed it very well so that we can still see the details of the heron

Nice work. Yellow warblers are always flitting about in the trees and tough to get. Late hour shots of the heron are nice for really difficult shooting situations.
