Back Yard Bird
Photo Location: Lake Jackson, TX ISO: 800 
Posted By: Sailor, 04-06-2010, 11:11 AM

Here are couple of simple phots of a bird a caught in the backyard a few days ago. ISO 800 was used in order to allow a shutter speed that would cope with my shakey constitution.

Hi Jer, these are quite nice! Looks like a sort of Cuckoo to me, but then: I'm no bird expert, and I know less than nothing of New World Birds...

Hey Buddy, thanks for the nice words. Yeah, I gotta use high ISO with my longer lenses. One impetus for the technologies that significantly improve high ISO performance is - in my view - to allow photographers to stop down to lens' sweet spots while maintaining a fast shutter speed - and not just in low-light situations.
