3 Or More Is Really Difficult (BIF's)

From my trip down to Bernardo & Bosque I decided to pay more attention to the photos and especially where I got a lot of BIF keepers compared to where I got only a few BIF keepers. I noted the percentage of keepers with two birds was much smaller than a lone bird but I was really surprised with how few I got with 3 or more birds. Below is a guess using 40 as the starting number.

40 / loners
15 / two birds
2 / 3 or more birds

Here ares some 3 or more shots. When I was going thru the photos I decided if I keep one it has to show the head on all the birds in the photo.

#1


Different but can not see all 3 heads

#2


This one I kept

#3


Now 4 at a time

I missed the head on one of them, close but no cigar

#4


All heads accounted for

#5


Close but no cigar

#6


Now 5 at a time

#7


#8


Almost a missed head

#9


#10


Aim in that direction and shoot

#11

OK hot shot, now you're just showing off. :lol: And you are making me very jelous.
No matter the number of birds in the shot, these are all very worthy of hanging on the ol' trophy room wall. At least, that's what I'd do.
Nice work Roger, and thanks for sharing these suprer shots. I may just have to plan a trip to this reserve.

If you like shooting Cranes & Snow Geese this has to be one of the best places available.
