GBH this afternoon

Discussion in 'Birds' started by hillrg, Mar 24, 2007.

  1. I took these after seeing a GBH while walking with my wife. I returned, and no heron. But after a little wait he returned to the oppositie side of the little bay. After another while, much to my surprise, the heron took flight right toward me and landed about 30 feet away. I was shooting into the sun for the closeups, but I am fairly happy with the results.

    D2X + 500/4 plus a break in the weather...

  5. Hi Andreas. The 500 by itself it way better than with the TC17. I did not keep any of the ones with the TC... BTW - 100% processed in Lightroom and then directly to Ditto using the script I sent you.
     
  6. We tend to get quite a bit of variation. This one was in particularily good shape.
     
  7. Thanks Bill - much appreciated!

  17. Nice GBH Rory. I am not sure where that sun came from. You guys up north must be using it all up as we have not seen any sun for a very long time.
     
  18. It showed up for about 30 minutes yesterday afternoon. But, it is sunny this morning! I saw in the forecast that you should have sun right now too...
     
  19. Wow, beautiful series, Rory!!! Very well done....
