One can get some unreal backgrounds at Pond A in Irvine's San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary. And you don't even have far to walk; it's right off the parking lot. All you have to do is get there around sunrise, when the sun starts peeking over the nearby hills. Then you have to hope for calm conditions and that a nearby Avocet or duck doesn't "make waves" When everything comes together -- magical. This was taken withh the 40D/100-400 IS mounted on the BushHawk. C & C welcome as always.

Very impressive Steve. Nice balance of elements. I liked the plant in the BG although you could trim a little from right side of the frame.

Thanks for the critique about the framing, Vishnu. I'll experiment with a right-side trim. As for liking the BushHawk, the simple answer is -- it's perfect for me. Now that I have the 500 f4 it never leaves the BushHawk, and while walking sling the rig around my neck to hold it upside-down under my right arm, usually holding on to the hand grip. I prefer portability rather than using a tripod as I tend to ramble about the entire day. The only continuing problem I've had is with the BushHawk shutter release cord, which when working properly allows you to use the shutter trigger button next to the hand grip so you can hold the unit tightly and fire away at the birds; especially useful when in-flight. I've gone through about 3 cords and none of them have worked consistently. But other people's luck may vary.

Best Wishes,
Steve

Thanks Morris. Pond A is pretty well-known around here for giving the birds a painterly bg on occasion, and I've seen times just after sunrise when the birds look like they're in liquid gold.

Best Wishes,
Steve
