You got the exposure spot on with this one mike.

P.

Thanks a bunch Pag. I'm always fighting with exposure when shooting crows. I throw so many shots away, because it's just not correctly exposed, to where I can clearly see the eye(s), and some body detail.

Wonderful capture Mike. Love the pose and the sky.

Thank you Robert. Crows are kind of my nemesis, because so many of my photographic attempts end up in the cyber garbage can. Luckily, I live in an area where crows are abundant year around, and I literally shoot them everyday with my camera. It's great practice, and every so often I get it right.

Beautiful. A very clear, clean image. Shows the detail off very well.
Love the way its streaking across the water.


avondale87 wrote in post #18812556 (external link)
Don't worry Shalu I didn't undo my Like  :p

A really beautiful bird. Lovely.

Both these encapsulate the beauty of these birds of prey and their flight variances along with their feathers, patterns etc.
As much as I love the stills, these in-flight ones are my preference.

:-P:lol: Thank you for your nice comments, Richard!

Man you and Ed are killing the Kites!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, Robert! You really should visit California. The in-flight food transfer between parents should start in a few weeks, followed by food transfer between parent and juveniles. Always lots of fun to shoot that action!

Thank you Shalu. Your kite shot here is superb. I love the position of the bird (wings up and feet down), and the overall composition is quite nice.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Those sure came out great, Martin. I find it difficult to use a 1.4 TC on a 500 mm lens for BIF. I loose the target most of the time.:-(

Thanks, the owls usually show in the distance where it is easy but up close it does get a bit hectic with 1120mm equivalent. I don't think I will use it for Hobby's come the summer.

Nice and unique shot! I suppose it barely has the fish- for a second I thought the fish was added to the image because it looks like it is trying to swim away.

Two excellent GBH flight shots Paul. I'm very impressed how you incorporated the Herons limb in your signature with the first shot. Very clever, for sure.
