p.3 #1 · Sunday Birds at Bolsa Chica


Well I see our Osprey finally made it down there
Super opening shot Kirk and that's how you expose an Osprey

Finch looks nice on the simple perch and this one has great color for non breeding plumage

Wing symmetry on the Peli really adds and what a sweet angle!

Sweet PM light on the Heron. If mine I might be tempted to remove the specular highlight competing with the eye on the fishy

Love the comp for the last frame and I'm enjoying the great detail and color on the B'fly


Way to work the Bolsa my friend

Great set, Kirk. My favorites are #1 & 3.
It's always very inspirational to see what you can do with 420mm.
Reminds me that I don't need longer glass - just better skills to get closer.
Chris


Many, many thanks for the encouraging words Chris.
420mm on a DX body gives an effective 630mm which is pretty good reach... but closer is always better.

Great set Kirk,

1 and 2 are my choices here but it really is hard to pick favourites from such a high quality group.

Paul.


Thanks for the wonderful words Paul, greatly appreciated.

Humble thanks for the very thoughtful and generous comments buddy.
Really appreciate the suggestion to remove the distracting highlight in the GBH shot.
Many thanks once again Tom.

Hey Ken, great to hear from you... thanks for the good words.
I really hope you'll be out shooting more often in the coming months... and that I'll see you out there.

Thanks so much Ted... those BC Ospreys are soooooo cooperative. Now if I can just get them to catch some fish right there in front of my camera.
