I had gotten several photos during our recent trip to Middle Concho/Spring Creek park, that I described in a previous post. (Click here) Here are a few more.
This Great Blue Heron was sitting on the other side of the river on a dead tree limb. Exposure was 1/1000 sec. @ f8, ISO400. Canon 7D. Canon 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter, tripod mounted.
The Cinnamon Teal and the American Coot were feeding in these shallow reeds, along with several of their friends and relatives. Exposure 1/500 sec. @ f5.6, ISO 400. Canon 7D. Canon 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter. I propped the camera on the hood of my car, using a SaharaSack camera support.
Belted Kingfisher sitting on a branch watching over everything. Exposure was 1/1000 sec. @ f7.1, ISO 400. Canon 7D. Canon 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter, photographed from window, using Puffin Pad camera support.
Great Egret, wading in the shallows across the river. Two American Coots swimming casually by. Exposure 1/1000 sec. @ f16, ISO 400. Canon 7D. Canon 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter. Tripod mounted.

Wow!! I love them all..really like the Belted Kingfisher..he is classy..the Great Egret is hard to top especially with the Coots in front..great composition on all of the photos…
Thanks, Syl. Even though the Kingfisher was partially hidden, I still thought it made a great photo. Thank you so much. 🙂
I adore the Great Blue and the Kingfisher, Bob! Great photos!
Thank you so much. The photo of the Cinnamon Teal is definitely not aesthically great. It was more for information.
Love the great blue heron photo. Thanks for sharing
Thank you very much, Pat. Also thanks for visiting my blog. I will check yours out as well. I see that you are a birder, you have come to the right place. 🙂
Love ’em all, but I especially love the Belted Kingfisher. Gorgeous, Bob! Cheers, Denise
Thanks, Denise. I apprecite you.
Beautiful and adventurous, Bob. Great photos. 🙂
Thank you, Nandini. I appreciate it.
These are spectacular Bob! You must be in a major migration route…you have such a variety!
Yes, we are on a migration route, so we get a pretty good variety of birds here. Thanks for the compliments, however I don’t know I would say spectacular, but If you say so that’s fine with me. 🙂 The photo of the Cinnamon Teal, is not so great, but the best I could get under the circumstances.
Thanks again, David
Thank you, Karen.
Nice images, Bob. By the results on the screen and your reported ISO/Aperture/Shutter triangle it looks like you had some good light to work with.
Yes the light was good.
Wow, love the Great Blue.
Thank you very much, Rev. I appreciate it.
