At first he kept about a 100 yard safe zone but I wore him down.
The Turtles Were More Wary than The Bird
In the previous pic you can see that turtle eyeing me ( 50 yds away )and he high-shelled it leaving his bud all alone. Neither of them minded the bird it seems.
After A While I Got Closer
I Would Stalk Him All Over The Area ...
I guess he got hungry enough that he decided to just put up with me so he could get a meal. What a fish catching machine. I kept missing his stabs. He was letting me within 20 yards but kept flying ahead every time he got a fish 50 yards or so.
Not A Great Pic But Interesting Background
This Guy Was A Real Hunter
He drug me 300 yards up this little creek. He would creep around rocks and branches peering into the pools. His strike was so fast I don't think you could get it on 'film' so to speak. :big grin:
I Finally Caught Him as He Caught One
But I muffed it. Had the camera on CAF as I wanted to catch him flying and get a sequence and focus was wandering all over the place. And the light was bad. I tried to recover it in LR (shot in Orf) but it was blown so bad I couldn't make much of it. Any way. Got 'a' fish shot.
Bump. Just once.
Great set, thanks for sharing! I love wildlife photography. Which lens did you use?
Hi. Thanks. I was using the 75/300 hand held. I should have been using at least a monopod but I just find them so cumbersome when moving around a lot. Lame, I know.
These were also my first shots in RAW with this camera and I'm not very good at PP. Need some schooling and lots of practice.
Nice shooting! You've got some patience. Love the one with the squirrel.
Thanks. Could not believe my good fortune when he scampered into the frame. Now if only I could have gotten one or the other in focus. :tongue:
