#4 for me! Exquisite lighting and great background.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I agree. Number 4 is best. Plain background makes bird pop out.

How did you get that low angle?

Thank you for comments.
Greg, this time I even dug a hole in sand to get low, but normally i use the home made ground pod. Around 9:00 in the movie

Very interesting. Very helpful. Thousand Thanks.

I thumbed up the video on youtube. Hopefully the thumb took without me having to create an account.

Couple questions please.

Please advise what kind of camo sock that is you put on at about the 10 min mark in the video.

It looks like you put something on the viewfinder at 10:10. What does that do?

At 13:31 you are able to spin the camera. Can you explain more about the pod and the tripod head set up you are using?

Lastly, how long do you usually have to wait after the setup for the birds to come back?

Again, big thanks.


Keep 'em flying,
Greg B

10:00 just lens rain cover. Rain in Ireland may come any time.

10:10 angle viewfinder helps me to look trough the camera viewfinder while I am laying on my belly and camera is just above the water or ground.

Just to check it the camo mesh is loose enough. The gimbal head can rotate any direction. Here are some close up pictures of my set used for mammals.

Depends. Sometimes I have to wait few minutes, sometimes few hours and sometimes few years like for the kingfishers I just recently shot after 3-4 years of waiting.
Birds near feeder usually few minutes (only winter time), sea beards from few minutes till never (spring till late summer).
Again, big thanks.
Thanks.
