  1. I had to keep backing up, these guys just walked up to me and fed. I was on my knees for some shots. They were at points, 5 ft. away, and too close for focus.
    this one is a portrait crop from a landscape shot, but cropped fully top to bottom.
    NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/7.1    1/1000s    ISO 320

    NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/500s    ISO 320

    uncropped, just resized:
    NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/400s    ISO 320

    too close to get the whole beak in:
    NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/500s    ISO 320

    OOF cause he's too close for the lens to focus:
    NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/400s    ISO 320

    maybe I was adopted? :shock:

    gotta love to close to focus. Was this a case of wrong lens or surprise subject?

    That is close Harris,

    But so great....Love the wild life when they stay close enough to actuall enjoy.

    Good work.

    thanks for keeping up with the family of Sand Hill Cranes. I have sure enjoyed each and every image.
  6. They just kept walking right on up to me. I backed up numerous times.
