p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · My First Black Necked Stilts


Saw the stilts yesterday for the first time ever . Went out early this morning , hoping they would be in the same place. They were ! Despite my attempts to crawl through the muddy ground, still could not get very close.

I had the 500mm with the 1.4TC. Still need much more reach

I need to practice with the TC . I think I should have stopped down some more . Maybe that would have helped??

Of course I saw the RWBB's yesterday on the sunflowers again. Couldn't resist just one more shot.


As always appreciate your help , comments and suggestions.

Well done with the stilts Birdie, they are super. The last one is a fantastic shot though, and is my favourite

Last one is a beaut, Birdie. Don't know if it is your TC on the first two. Shutter speed seems high enough.

Beautiful images Birdie. Nicely seen and composed. I especially like 2. The third is also very sweet and tack sharp. Well done.

You have that RWBB well trained Birdie... another beautiful shot.
Here's hoping you get some closer opportunities in better light with the Stilts.

Grats on the first Roberta
Gorgeous view of the RWBB on a sweet perch!

Have you had time to MA the 500 with TC yet?

Another great set Birdie. The stilts look great, and the RWBB is very nice too. For me though, I'd like to see more room on the left as it feels a bit unbalanced to me ~ Ron

Hi Roberta,

Great compositions and a nice set of laundry! The first appears as if you focused on the breast rather than the eye. If you strop down to about F8 you get more DOF and focus errors are hidden. The last is a beauty.

Really nice Birdie!! Love that last RWBB shot

As Tom said > Take the time to do your Micro Focus adjust with and without TC with your new lens. It can make a huge improvement in Image Quality

Unfortunately using a TC really affects your DOF. The closer you are to your subject the less DOF you get. Around f/8 is the sweet spot for that combo (500 + 1.4x)

Keep up the good work gurl

Me too, Birdie. Three excellent images, but the third is a home run.
BTW- are these gigantic female redwings? Or small sunflowers? .

Big congrats on the BNS Birdie! We have many here so tend to take them for granted. Not to take away from your first specie, but that last shot is sooooo gorgeous!Beautiful capture and back ground. One small nit, I would zoom out and give more space to the left, I know your're trying to preserve the leaf on the right.
