Today, I could get in real close and he was posting for me. There is no need even for me to crop the image. But it just refused to fly even after 30 minutes.

I like number 1, although I think it would be improved by pulling back slightly to see the whole reflection of the bird.



Just a thought.

Sarah ,

Thanks for taking time to comment.

See if it is better

Framing and composition has never been my strength

Hi Daniel,

Nice shots -- I'm starting to see GBHs around while I'm driving pretty regularly now that this years hatch is pretty independent. I'm seeing more young ones than adults, and so far, they don't seem as spooky as the adults. My problem is being able to get out with it being so hot and humid here lately. . .

Much better with the reflection.



Unfortunately I suffer from the same "get the shot, ignore composition" syndrome.



The amount of my pics I look at and say "should move left; should move right; should zoom back; should sell camera!!"



Oh well, back to the viewfinder.

Thanks for looking.

Dal,
A lot of time when I was in tight corner with nowhere to back to I swore to get a Bigma zoom instead of a fixed prime. Perrenial argument on the pros and cons of prime vs zoom. I have big advantage in weight as my combo is just around 2lb which is 1/4 of Scott's combo (Tamron 300mm2.8+K10D+Troipod) Being so light, I need to be close to the subject - another big minus. All the pict I took yesterday are uncropped

Scoot,
Hope these gbh shots are just the beginning. With the sticky weather (coming from Roy's territory and we can blame everything on Roy incl weather) wildlife shooting is trickier in summer time. Last yr I got 20 bites on my back through my T shirt in a shootout with another fellow despite all the precaution.

Very nice Daniel. I don't know that I have yet gotten every aspect of composition correct in a single photo. Really though, that is what makes this interesting, if I had gotten the perfect shot of a particular subject, why bother to ever try again?
