Found this baby crow in a small tree today, the light was very low, but the photo didn't come out too bad using SR. The crow parents were less than happy I was taking baby photos of their child, so I left them alone after getting this shot.

ISO 200, 70mm @ 2.8, 1/15 sec, hand held.

Black is such a tough color to get the kind of detail you got on this shot. Nicely done. If it weren't for the distracting blurred branches in the foreground this one could be a framer.

Mahalo,

Tom

The baby was as far back in the pine tree as it could get so this was the best I could do and the sun was going down at a high rate of speed. Thought it was interesting that the SR allowed 1/15sec with a fairly shape image, along with quite a bit of detail in the black feather area.

Tom,

Why is it babies are so cute, no matter what species they are? Nice picture!

Nice shot Tom, you did do a great job on the blacks and holding steady both.

I like this picture...the braches frame the subject very well! Good exposure too.
