…morning light is magic…

Wing Span

Got to practice some flight shots at Dayton, TX while waiting for the Kites to show up.  Found that I was in the flight path of several Great Egrets.  Took my camera off the tripod to get these shots.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter, handheld

1/1600 sec @ F10, ISO 800, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation

    • Thanks Stephen. I’m a big fan of back lighting on birds and always jump at the chance to get this type of shot.
