GBH with fish

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Jim Strathearn, Apr 4, 2007.

  1. Stopped by a local pond on the way home this morning and found the resident GBH feeding. I have seen him/her several times, but never while hunting. These guys are quick! I would have him in the viewfinder waiting for him to strike, and by the time he did and came back up with a fish, it was too late for me to react. I then machine gunned him trying to get a flip! I give a lot of credit to those who capture the flip... It's hard! My feeble OOF attempt is at the bottom of this post...

    D2H, 500P, TC16a:


    Does this qualify for a flip? At 8fps, the fish was already completely in the mouth and not visible in the very next frame! :eek:

    Nicely capture on the first. :biggrin: Does the D2H AF with the TC16a + 500P?
  3. Thanks Jason.

    Yes, all four AF systems work with the TC16a. The amount of focusing w/the 500 is pretty much a fine tune adjust, but it makes all the difference for me.
  4. Very Nice Jim

    They sure are fast Jim! Excellent series..its reassuring to know I am not the only one who misses flips at 8fps:biggrin:
  16. LOL! I'd fill the buffer trying to anticipate the flip and still miss it!

    Thanks for looking!
