Swainson’s Thrush

Swainson’s Thrush

Today, Oct. 10, 2013, I was honored to go out shooting with my wonderful daughter, Kimi (KimberlyOrthPhotography.com).  We went to the Salish Pond area in Fairview, Oregon, about 3 minutes from my home.  In a way it’s kind of a mini-wildlife refuge from woods to wetlands.  One of the first birds we came across was this Swainson’s Thrush eating berries.  This is a lifer bird for me.  I was pleased with the shot using a 1000mm set up on a monopod.  I used a Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f8, ISO 1250, 1000mm (500 + 2x  III).

    Oh thank you, Papa! I LOVED shooting and spending the day with you! I’m so glad you arranged our outing! This is a fantastic shot, especially from such a distance (and especially when you consider a teleconverter was used)! I LOVE IT! And, BTW, I am the one who is honored to be shooting with YOU…I love photography SO MUCH, and I couldn’t have had a better teacher than you! <3

      Kimi, such a nice comment! You couldn’t be biased a little, could you? 🙂 The teaching goes both ways though. We’ve learned a lot from each other beings our major genres are quite different but even so, there is a lot of overlap. Love you!
