Today a double-crested cormorant visited the backyard pond. I got a couple of BIF shots.

Thank you very much, Shalu.

Full frame with the goose certainly does render excellent sharpness/detail, Shalu. Really nice work!! The big trick is capturing it full frame at 1200mm. And yeah, I know...dot sight!:-D

Thank you very much, Mike! :lol:

Fantastic capture Sha.
Do you notice, on the Sony A9, any rolling shutter (slanted trees in the background),
when shooting fast action with the 20 frames per second electronic shutter?
Happy trails.

My gear is not even close to what you guys have here--longest is 135mm + 1.4x. I thought this one was interesting though. Taken at Lake Mead, Nevada.

As your photo proves, it's not the gear it's the photographer that matters ( though gear can make things easier)

Thank you very much, Paul! I haven't noticed any rolling shutter on A9, probably not enough to be noticeable most of the time. On the other hand, my friend's A7RIII has severe rolling shutter effect when he uses electronic shutter for BIF.
