Burst = Position & Shadows (Cranes)

Will (Trenchmonkey) and I discussed a couple of time using burst mode. I went thru some of my folders to pick out some that I think burst mode allowed me to get that extra photo. The position of the animal or bird changes especially when they are moving and shadows also come into play IMHO.

Canon 1D Mark3 with a Canon 500mm and a 1.4 converter. All using my BushHawk.

Yes I am a burst mode Junkie.

#1
One of about 7, I like the open mouth and the shadow.




#2
In the middle of about 10. This one made me smile.




#3
The next 5 are from 1 burst of about 18. Each one is a little bit different so can choose what ever one you like to keep.

#4


#5


#6


#7


#8



The only one in a short burst of 7 with out a bad shadow.
#9



I don't remember how many in this burst but I only 1 keeper.
#10



One of about 14 and the only one I like where the shadow was.
#11

Just a fast trip to the Bosque where they winter. I got to shoot 2 mornings and 2 afternoons. Now I am back home in the Mountains.

wow. nice work roger. looks like the autofocus of the mark III is working just fine for moving targets. how's the weight when you use the bushhawk with it and the 500mm f4. that's gotta be alot of weight on your shoulders.
