Roseate spoonbills

Discussion in 'Birds' started by alexf, Sep 14, 2008.

  1. A visit to Flamingo Gardens in Davie,FL, a center for injured animals

    Birds were so close that I was below focusing distance on my 80-400VR in many cases.
    NIKON D80    ---    95mm    f/6.3    1/640s    ISO 400


    NIKON D80    ---    80mm    f/6.3    1/250s    ISO 400


    NIKON D80    ---    80mm    f/6.3    1/640s    ISO 400


    NIKON D80    ---    35mm    f/4.0    1/4000s    ISO 100

    On this one, I had to switch to the only other lens I was carrying, believe it or not, a 35mm F/2!
  2. A week and no comments? Criticisms then? Always willing to learn...

    Nice series, Alex!
    I think most people prefer to see the whole bird. First one has clipped wings and all are missing the feet. I personally like all of them. I know you couldn't help it.
  4. Good job preserving the detail in the whites Alex.
  5. All of the pictures seem a bit cool and muted. Great job capturing detail in the feathers though. :smile:
  6. nice series of shots Alex
