p.1 #1 · the RUSH of handheld BIF


Anyone else get off on trackin'...waiting for just the perfect moment, and taking the shot
Probably why many of y'all are here. This just dawned on me the other day, what a great
repeatable feeling we're privy to. I'd been taking it for granted of late, but my recent shoots
with Larry & Burt/Mark & Jim...had me truly appreciating how lucky we are. Just sayin'

Beautiful shot Will....you definitely got the right moment here and executed the tracking and shooting to perfection. It is a skill set that looks easy in the hands of you guys who do it effortlessly...I will be the first to admit...it ain't so easy

You are quite right Will, it's nice to have something we do bring so much accomplishment and be so repeatable.

Still practicing to get to the point of "repeatable" Agree with Eric "it ain't so easy" as you guys make it look

Fantastic shot Will and yes agree there is something about the challenge and the accomplishment when it all works together !

That's a sweet one, Will. You're right about the rush -- it ain't easy and when you really nail one it feels pretty good. I'll just add that it's a good thing my digital trash barrel is bottomless, because they are not all keepers.

Yes indeed Will, nothing beats the feeling of having focus locked on while tracking the bird across the sky until just the right moment and then pressing the shutter. Few types of photography put a smile like that on your face.

Cool shot Mr. 'Monkey... didn't know Nikons could do BIF

Jokes aside, getting into BIF has been an enjoyable learning experience, but has also been detrimental to my productivity at work and usefulness around the house...

It is truly a great rush when the birds take off and one starts tracking to get a shot.

Returning a favor from another related thread, here's a view of the Monkey in his native habitat, scanning the sky for the next opportunity. Shot last weekend during our excellent stroll at Bernie's. I'm pretty proud of myself for not blowing out the whites in that beard.

Nice tracking there, Mr Will...

My kids probably call you, " Bird Santa Clause, not Monkey"...

Joey

PS: thanks for all the camera setting that you have given out to other members and me...
