…morning light is magic…

Long Billed Curlew in Silhouette

Here are a couple more silhouette shots from Bolivar Flats.  This time, Long Billed Curlew’s.  Just can’t resist silhouette shots before the sun comes up.  A guilty pleasure of mine.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens with 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head.

1/125 sec @ F5.6, ISO 800, evaluative metering, + 2/3 exposure compensation

  1. Great silhouettes, like the combination of bird and background colors. Nothing like early morning.

  8. Thanks Lyle. The birds have been very cooperative lately. It’s prime time during the winter on the gulf.

  9. Thanks. Appreciate you stopping by and commenting. I’ve been taking photos from the prone position for a few years and don’t like my standing up shots anymore. Can’t beat the perspective from a birds eye view.
