…morning light is magic…

Caracara Wingspan at Sunrise

Caught this Crested Caracara as he was coming in for a landing at the Santa Clara Ranch raptor blind.  Taken with my 100-400 II lens, which worked very well on this trip.

Aperture priority, 1/2500 sec @ F5.6, ISO 3200, evaluative metering, 400mm

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 100-400 II lens mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head.

  1. Beautiful light! Was this sunrise or sunset? This taught me a lesson on leaving room around the sides for the wings. I often crop too close.

    • Thanks Newton. Using my 100-400 left plenty of room for cropping, or not. Switched to my 500 later in the morning to see how that went. Both were very affective.

    Oops. I didn’t read the title, “Wingspan at SUNRISE ”
