Great shot. I really admire you bird shooters. What lens and body?
Hey Thanks Gilles
I was just playing with a new camera.
This was shot with a Canon 1D MKIII and a Canon 500/4 +1.4TC
This is just a test shooting, Nothing serious
Nothing serious? You have to be kidding! those are awesome shots. Those birds usually thumb their beaks at me as they fly by. Wonderful shots.
great shots, glad to see the mk3 is working
A friend of mine is having all sorts of trouble with his, its been back to Canon twice now and its still a POS, in AI servo tracking mode its shocking.
Thanks Colin, Sorry about your Friend, I've only had mine out once and most of that was setting functions as it seem to shoot a bit different than my 40D
I sincerely hope yours is ok Gary as it could be a great camera.
I had one and it was the reason, after about 18 years with Canon, that i made the move and switched to Nikon.
very nice, gary
i like these shots
Even under those harsh conditions they still look mighty sweet Gary.The birds have finally arrived here in the mid-west and none to soon I may add.Lets get out there and have some fun:biggrin:
