    The light was loooow...especuially for the owl as the sun had ctually dipped below the horizon...but it's better than not grabbing the shot at all I suppose. It's kinda noisy but I had no more light with which to bump the EV past 1.0....


  2. Nice images Jim. My favorite is the Hawk as I think the lighting is great. It really shows off the hawk in all its finery.
  3. Hi Jim

    I love those photos that look like they have been painted. I do not think you could get much better light.

    Hi Gordon...

    You should see the top side of these Harriers...they look completely different!

    Thanks Craig and Daawwwwwggg
  9. YOu know what.....

    Cant say they match up to your other beauts, but considering the elements you were in, you handled it great! Always enjoy looking at your birdie pics!! Time to part with the 200-400mm VR though, that 500mm would have helped you here :lol:

    Ever thougt of using a better beamer??? Im thinkin of going that way to extend my flash, natural light is always better but times like this, one wants to capitalize on it............

    nice shots AS USUAL!!!!!!!

    Hi Keith...

    Unless there happens to be a bolt of lighting which fires off at the exact second that I take a shot....I won't be using no fake lighting!

    I like em lit naturally...even if they are dark and noisy :)

    Jim, great looking shots.
    I do have 1 question, is the date set wrong in your
    camera? Since it's almost 10am on the 19th here
    in the UK, so it's only 5am on the east coast in the
    states. But your info boarder says 19 March?
