p.1 #1 · The grab


We are at the peak of fall color right now here in New York City. The dark clouds produced very little light under the canopy for me to spot this robin. Just after Id focused on it, it leaped upward and I held down the shutter releasing 3 frames, the first caught the robin facing in the opposite direction and it appears that it spun around as it went for this berry. The last frame did not capture the robin as it had gone off to the right and I had paned up. Im very happy that my camera was able to maintain focus lock on the moving bird and that balanced fill flash gave me such a nice exposure.







D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 400, 1/250, f8, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

The subject and use of flash in this situation yielded some interesting results. It all adds up to give a very neat 2D look (nothing in fore or background to give depth).

That's a very cool shot. Always nice knowing the situation during the image capture.

Thank you Ken,

The orange trees in the background were about 100 feet away. I agree it's incredibly flat

Good image, Morris.
Attacking berries and earthworms... robins are quite the hunters, aren't they?
