| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Early Father's Day Present-1st WTK(+1added) |
My son and I came back from a 5 hour, 10 mile hike at Andrew Molera State Park, that left me sore to say the least. I carried my 1D4 with 70-300L attached but had my 500mm in my backpack along with other stuff...I am sure I will pay for it in the morning.
Anyway, back at the Inn I saw a white bird take off across the field but never saw it land and completely forgot about it until I saw it again when it landed in a large evergreen tree. Well, what do you know, a White Tailed Kite. This is my first (there was actually a pair but we never saw them interact although there was a lot of calling back and forth.)
So I trudged out with my camera/500mm and 1.4tc and shot some images. Of course, I never calibrated this set up when the camera was returned from Canon for a major overhaul so most of the images are soft despite taking shots on a tripod (aaargh!) But I did get a few decent images and since it was my first ever WTK you all have to put up with my less than stellar images compared to the ones posted recently by a bunch of very talented FMers. I spent the evening calibrating so I hope to get shots first thing in the morning if they are still on the property.
Here goes...and oh by the way....HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all.
