p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Snail Kite


I'm at Kissimmee FL today with my buddy Conrad having a great time! We're out on the boat with Jim Neiger shouting Snail Kites and other birds. (This is my first Snail Kite!)
I'm sure Conrad will be posting some killer shots later.
A little slow this morning but looking for it to pick up this aftternoon.
1DIV....EF 500mm

Jim, #2 is what the best BIF photography is made of .....a full and harmonious combination of different elements, from the bird colouring, clarity and flight attitude caught, to the environment, composition and framing....and all of that should be accomplished while the bird is flying, sometimes very fast or erratic too.

So you also managed to shoot some kites too... What did they do when you shouted?? 1 is very nice, but 2 is super Jim.
So how many memory cards did Conrad go through - he has been know to burn through a few.

Congrats on your first, Jim. The bg, with its pleasing color tones, makes the second shot
