    Re: Post Your Best Nature Shots!



    Want to pump this thread to 100 posts []. Here's something I posted a while ago. I went out one early morning to photograph Osprey fishing for trout, instead I stumbled across this Great Blue Heronswallowing a trout. It took him a long time toget it down.


    Canon 40D, 400 f/5.6L, f/5.6, 1/320, ISO 3200, Noise Ninja.

    EdN;


    Thanks for the compliment on my pics....and I understand the difficulty; over 200 hundred shots at the rookery. I was hoping for a couple that had more feather details, e.g. yours and Sinh Nhut's pic. The GBHs put on a great display in spring.


    Re manual focus; I tried 5x live view MF, but that's a tough trick w/the monopod. When do you think Canon will come out IS for live view? []


    Jon;


    Glad you liked the pics...thank you. Actually, I'm actually trying to talk myself into the 500 plus 1.4x....if I can preserve my marital bliss, I'll start saving my money. []


    George S;


    You're correct about the pics....take it when you can get it even if it's less than perfect. 1.4x on the 100-400IS....hmmm, hadn't thought of it.


    Sinh Nhut Nguyen;


    What was your approximate distance from your GBH?


    Thanks again folks for your input...


    Bill

    Hi Bill, I was about 20 ft from the GBH. I bet I could come andcatch that bird, he was so into swallowing the fish that he ignored everything around him!

    There are some amazing pictures here. This is a pelican flying over a bay still showing Hurricane Ike damage.[img]/cfs-file.ashx/__key/CommunityServer.Components.UserFiles/00.00.00.28.52/Pelican-in-Flight-Sunrise.jpg[/img]

    Hmmm...maybe I'd better figure out how to upload pictures without having half the photo cropped out...

    I did the same thing as you before I learned what works. Crop or resize your image so it is 800 pixels wide at the maximum. Fits perfectly and displays perfectly.


    Regards

    Here are some shots from last summer on a small lake near Traverse
    City, Michigan. All were taken with a EOS 30D, with an EF 100-400
    f/4.5-5.6 L IS lens (rented from Lens Rentals -- who have given me
    great service by the way -- can't recommend them high enough).


    Enjoy

    Loons adult and immatures -- 400mm, f/7.1, 1/400 sec This image has been photoshopped a bit to tone down the green reflection from the woods along the lake shore.

    Great Blue -- taken from a kayak (hope the folks from Lens Rentals aren't reading this!) 400 mm, f/7.1, 1/400 sec

    Immature Bald Eagle 275 mm, f/8, 1/500 sec





    Let me know what you think. I've been a serious amateur for a while -- and having a blast.

    For Dave Metcalf:


    I can't give a technical critique. I just wish that I had taken them!


    Looks like you may have used the 100-400mm zoom.
