p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Tree swallow in dreamland








D200 + 80-400 VR + 1.4x TC @ 560mm, ISO 800, 1/400, f8, fill flash (SB910+ Better Beamer)

We had pea soup fog when I arrived at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area yesterday morning. I decided to take advantage of the nice soft light, dialed my flash back and started to stalk this tree swallow. It sits on the same branch and I think Iíll be able to get a head shot by the end of the summer.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

I like pea soup...just not taking photos in it. I like this shot Morris but wonder what the rectangle on the bird's left cheek and line through the bill might be.

Unusual pose and the colour is pleasingly muted. I'm curious to see what it would look like without the flash. Don

I like this, Morris.
Was the wind blowing his tail feathers like that? It is an unusual pose.
