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.
