I spent the morning near the Everett boat launch with a fellow photographer. Watching the herons is not only entertaining, but rewarding, photo wise.
All were taken with a Canon 5D Mark III, and a 500mm f4L lens at 1/1250s f4 and Auto ISO
Beautiful image, Bob. Too bad its getting so hard to get good shots thanks to the homeowners. They may have had good reason, though.
BillA and I are planning a trip in early June - can you still get off the causeway onto the beach?
What really sets these photos apart, imho, are the red twigs/branches that compliment the colors of the towhee. Very nicely done, Rocky!
Makes me want to get out and get some bird shots - its been awhile - too many irons in the fire~!!
I agree! But, since I shoot in RAW rapid fire shots quickly use up the buffer in my 5Diii. Once that's full, shooting stops whether I like it or not! The solution may be to shoot only in .jpg....or maybe buy a 1Dx?
