everyone's probably getting tired of herons by now, so i'll only post a couple more. here's one making a low-level pass...



skimming the waves...



this one really frosted me... i'd been shooting in aperture mode, and didn't have enough shutter speed to freeze the action. still, i like the formation and the feeling of speed this image imparts...



this one's muchclearer, after upping the shutter speed...

These shots are so good, as have all your recent postings, that I'll stick in a critique.

On image three, note that the head and neck are not clear. This has nothing, or at least little to do with the speed. It's a panning/shake problem. Birds always fly with the bodies relatively rigid, so shooting at too slow a speed should wind up with wing blur, but body clear.

Once again, wonderful shots!

Dave

wouldn't surprise me, Dave. when i got home, i realized i'd been shooting in aperture mode, not shutter, and this was taken at 1/160 - an absurdly slow speed for a 400mm lens panning handheld. if i'd been paying proper attention, i'd have noticed that beforehand, and switched to shutter priority at 1/800 or so, which would have given me the shot i wanted... :angry: oh well... at least after this, i'll remember it next time!
