My flock pales in comparison. I suddenly feel inadequate...

I think Brandt's is correct,. definately not Canada geese,. they are much smaller and make a the sweetest little sound..

The "sweet sound" makes them brant. Really nice image. (don't want to say "shot" with TomW lurking around....makes him get all glassy eyed) :lol:

Nice geese pictures, everybody, really nice.

CDS, what lens did you use to get the background blurred out like that. Unless you were quite a distance from the flock you must have used a shorter telephoto, right?

No,. it's my 500mm,. I'm looking for exif now.. but I think the aperture was up about f/7-8 or so.....

hang on..........

Wow,. how's this for memory? ... f/7.1 ISO 200, 1/640 shutter.

I was quite far away,. they were about 1/3 of the way across a small salt water pond.. partially frozen over.

Thanks for the info, CDS.

BTW, if you get a free moment, I was wondering if you could do me a big favor and take two shots of something, one using a focal length of 400mm and another using 500mm. I'm just curious as to what the difference is in terms of angle of view between the two. I already have a 100-400 and I'm wondering if a 500 is going to make a big difference.

Thanks.

I can do it,. but currently the only way I can get to 400mm is with a 2X t-con on a 70-200mm....

(unlike some people I know who can do it with 4 different combos)

:lol:

200 x 2 is fine. I just need a visual of a 400 vs 500 so that'll work just fine, too.

Thanks again.
