Hi readers! My blog entry on Wednesday’s shoot will need to wait a few days as we are painting our office. This will delay getting the posting done. But I am looking forward to selecting the photos I want to post and writing a play-by-play of the day.
I visited the Ridgefield NWR yesterday and the weather was fantastic! I had a great day shooting and haven’t counted exactly all the species of birds and animals I came across but it’s got to be between 15 and 20, I think! I don’t believe I’ve ever had a more active day there in the 4 years I’ve been visiting Ridgefield. I even got a new bird for my life list yesterday–can’t wait to tell you about it!
I have posted ONE of the kestrel flight shots from Wednesday on Flickr. And, I have a second frame of that kestrel flying towards me, that I will post exclusively on my blog and website. I’m trying not to duplcate every photo on both sites. Please visit my Flickr page via the link on the homepage.
I also took a lot of flight shots yesterday of cranes and harriers and had better luck with them using the 7D. I think I have found an AF setting that works better for me. I’ll tell you about this as well as post a whole bunch of shots that I hope you will like. So please stay tuned and come back to read about my exciting shooting day (exciting for ME anyway!), Oct. 27, 2010.
I can’t promise exactly when I will have the entry posted–it depends on how long the painting takes! Happy shooting and see you soon!
