Blurred Blast-Off

Blast off’s by a large flock of Geese are always fun to hear and photograph.  It’s a challenge to get sharp photos before the sun comes up so I typically go for blurred shots using shutter priority.  First photo is of Geese and the second is a flock of Black Birds.  Taken on a chilly morning at Anahuac NWR in SE Texas last weekend.

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

Shutter priority, 1/8 sec @ F9, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, +1 exposure compensation
