Flying Roseates and a Tricolor

Discussion in 'Merritt Island II' started by Kevin Scott, Jun 7, 2005.

  1. Here are the last of my flying series.....

    Roseate spoonbills


    There were only a handful of spoonbills at the Rookery. We had to stand vigil and watch for them to arrive. I waited earlier in the day for them to fly out of one tree but Harry B told me they fly in the afternoons. He is a very wise man :wink: as they did just as he said. I missed a couple of the incoming volleys but I'm happy with what I got.

    The tricolor herons were exceptionally difficult to shoot. There wasn't time to switch from manual to Aperture priority so it was a trial and error type of shooting finally settling on a quick turn of the aperture dial to open up for the grey birds against the dark foliage. Took a bit but eventually worked out. Here's one of them (with some pp levels adjustment)

    Again (this is my second comment) nice captures and exposures. I like the tricolored best only because he seems more "real". Don't know how to describe it any better, but I would have been happy with any of the three. Nice work.

    Excellent shots Kevin. I like them all but the Tricolor is excellent considering the awful light that we had.
  5. Thanks you guys. It means alot to me to know that you think I did good. I was determined to get the tricolor and was very pleased with the result.
