    Let's see I haven't done a variety post in 2 weeks :confused: 
    So I guess it's time :wink:

    Not sure why I like this, but I do

    I know why I like this !!

    Little slitherer

    Night Herons Adult and Juvi


    How do they stay so white :smile:

    There always room for reflection
  2. Nice sharp shots, Ben! Way to go!!!
  3. That hawk is superb! Great captures.

    Fantastic images Ben.

    The reflection is fantastic. ( Black necked stilt) Hope thats right :>))

    (edit...oh yeah..back under my rock...)
  5. I like the first for its mystery -- I know something is going on, but I can't figure out what that is. The others are just everyday, common, ordinary bfjr-excellence.
  6. You level of excellence shows in these shots. Great stuff as usual would sure love to live in such a rich target environment
  7. Hey Ben, what do you do to the flash to get it to fire at anything higher than 1/250 (or whatever the D2Hs flash sync speed is)

    Nice variety!! I really like the Stilt...

    First, let me say great shots Ben!! Your posts just get better and better. :smile:

    For Brett, the answer is that the D2H (and Hs) will fire the flash at any available shutter speed. You just don't get the flash sync above 1/250th. My admittedly limited understanding is that this means that the shutter controls the exposure in these cases, not the flash, so you don't get the full advantages of iTTL.

  9. Ben these are great. Another wonderful series and yes a great variety. I love the night herons, sure wish we had some here.

    Morning Kevin
    I am happy with the NH shots, boy there tough to expose for and I really didn't think many would work (many didn't) against the graying sky.

    Hi Andrea
    He was kind enough to pose there for us and allowed a close approach. Of course I blew the take off shot

    JUST SO nice, each and everyone!

    Re the first one - why is it that often some of the best shots is sans head - I have so many nice, correctly exposed shots of birds on the wing, from the back! They just never learn to take-off into the face of the photographer!:rolleyes:  Agre that it is an interesting shot, the one on the left adding character.
