Back to the birds, finally, as some of you are probably saying. During my last trip to High Island, got there a few minutes late due to an accicent that had a road completely blocked off. I was still there before the sun came up but the upper positions on the last platform were filled up already. Had to resort to the lower platform which isn’t my favorite.
Found lots of Spoonbills flying around and was able to capture this one in silhouette as the sun was coming up. Used negative exposure compensation to help darken the scene.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head.
1/1000 sec @ F 7.1, ISO 400, evaluative metering, -2/3 exposure compensation
