Well, it was about the worst weather I've had to shoot in at Viera but I managed to squeek out some keepers. Got there before everyone else while the fog was still thick. It was nice and still there. The sun never did come out so ISOs were very high...between 320 and 800. Tried to use the tripod but shot the usual handheld combo...300/f4 AFS and 1.7tc. Here are the results: What the heck are you doing down there? [1/250 f6.7 ISO400] Of course the ubiquitous Green Heron [1/125 f8 ISO320] Hooded Mergansers, which I've never seen there before but there were lots of them now. [1/180 f6.7 ISO400] Even got a shot of one inflight [1/250 f6.7 ISO400] These are of the same hawk that Steve and Harris posted [1/500 f8 ISO320] [1/60 f6.7 ISO320 on tripod] We broke for lunch and everyone went their way. I figured I'd go back to Viera for a once around the block. Glad I did. On the way to lunch we stopped to shoot a Caracara (Harris posted his shot). When I got back to "The Tree", there was one sitting up there posing. [1/400 f6.7 ISO640] He took off then circled around [1/640 f6.7 ISO640] I left Viera and decided to run through Click Pond. I saw an interesting bird flying but didn't know what it was. I couldn't ever catch up to him but just before I left, I spotted this guy sitting on a post. Looks like he just ate as he has blood on his foot. This was probably the best shot of the day! [1/100 f7.1 ISO500 handheld] I don't own any noise reduction software so these are pretty much as shot as far as noise goes. I'm not the most accurate when it comes to exposure but was pretty well pleased with these. I also didn't get a chance to really put the focus tracking to test but felt it did much better since the firmware upgrade compared to before. I'm anxious to give it a workout on a clear day now!
