Northern Harriers at High ISO

Northern Harriers at High ISO

Here’s my first posted shot taken with my new Canon 5D Mark III body.  I took it out for the first time Friday, Nov. 2.  The weather was still a lot cloudier than I would have liked but it gave me six hours of shooting before it started raining.  These two Harriers were doing some kind of mid-air ritual and I shot about a dozen frames of it in burst mode.  Unfortunately, the AF setting I had chosen initially for the new camera was not correct and I ended up missing all the shots except for two frames.  The other possibility is that I just messed up!  🙂  In any case, this shot was taken at ISO 3200, 1/1250, f5.6, with my 400mm f5.6L prime lens.
