Here is a burst series from a few weeks ago when the sun was out. D300 w/ Tamron 300-500mm, 1/1250 at f/11, ISO 800.
Thanks for looking,
Steve

How can anyone not love shooting these beautiful birds? I just wish we had them here in SW Arkansas. A really nice series. I think my favorite is #1 because of the underside wing detail and the tops of the marsh grasses in the foreground. I would have liked to have seen a little more facial lighting, but the light hitting the wings from the rear is what makes them so special. Nice work, Steve.

Thanks Paul, I agree. I just wish I could train them to fly into the sunlight. :lol:

Thanks Kent,

It helped that we had just had a light dusting of snow in the foothills.
