Default Mom Gets Upset

Been a while since I posted, so here is one from today from a ride in the pontoon paddle boat.

Here is a series of a female Loon rising up out of the water to protest my being too close to her nest.

K20D, Sigma 300mm 2.8, ISO 400, Monopod

Not sure I like #1 (head is obscured by the left wing), but #2, 3, & 4 are very nice!

Well, when you are shooting as fast as you can push the shutter release, you have to take what you get and I only included #1 to show the start of the series, which took about two seconds.

Those were taken on single exposure and not continuous shooting mode, which I find easier to control and the ISO was 400 @:
1 & 3-2000 sec @ f/9.5
2 & 4-1500 sec @ f/9.5

Such a fine series - really captures the emotions of the bird as well as the great colors of bird and habitat.

A very fine series, Tom. While the point is that it is a series, as a single shot #2 is my favourite.
