Took this just as the sun was going down with the A* 200, thanks to a friendly Sandhill Crane.

Its either on a string andstuffed or well trained. :lol:

I have near on 200 up the road and would you believe that I have tried and tried to get a shot like that, they fly way too fast for me to track.. :shock:

I have a spot where I sit in the late afternoon (see Muskrat photo) and just relax and watch nature around me. The Geese and Crane's usually fly from their feeding fields to where they roost for the evening and my spot seems to be a fly over.

They actually flew over twice for some reason and I got this and a few other shots on the second fly over, which I like because of the color from the sun setting.

It is like hunting, actually it is hunting, where if you are quiet and don't move they will come close to you, instead of you trying to get close to them.

Here is another from yesterday, but not quite as sharp. I need to go back to the FA 300 since it focuses faster.

both i like. the first i'd do some curves or levels to.

2nd looks like an over use of 'shadow highlight' with the halo around the bird. i do some levels to it also..

great shots tom, your technique is superb. mind sharing with us.. are these full frame images??

the first shot is definitly better than the second, it just seems to be framed a little better - which is perfect - nothing cluttering and its just the bird on its own


Also, clean your sensor :homey:
