Here are a few more images that I captured earlier this year. Like yesterday’s post, this one features again, photos from a fall visit to the water treatment ponds at Eldorado, Texas. The date was October 3, 2011. Click on any image to see an enlargement. Hope you enjoy.
Nashville Warbler (Oreothlypis ruficapilla): Canon EOS 7D with Canon 100-400mm zoom lens. 1/2000 sec. @ f6.3, -0.3 EV, ISO 800. Shutter priority with spot metering.
American Pipit (Anthus rubescens) : Canon EOS 7D with Canon 500mm lens and 1.4 tele-converter. 1/3200 sec. @ f6.3, -0.3 EV, ISO 400. Aperture priority with partial metering.
Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus): Canon EOS 7D with Canon 500mm lens and 1.4 tele-converter. 1/2000 sec. @ f16, ISO 1600. I just set the camera on Program, hoisted the camera, aimed, and shot.
Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias): Canon EOS 7D with Canon 500mm lens and 1.4 tele-converter. 1/2500 sec. @ f8, ISO 400. Aperture priority with partial metering.
All shots with the 7D were handheld. To see more of my photographs click on the Flickr Logo on the right side of this page.
Another collection of interesting photos! Amazing work, Bob!
Thanks, Karen, for your very kind words. 🙂
Really nice shots, Bob. I like them all, but am particularly fond of the BIF shots of the hawk and heron.
Thank you very much, Kerry. I love to attempt to get birds in flight. I hope you will visit again. Tomorrow I’ll have some amazing Bobwhite images.
I’ll definitely be back tomorrow, Bob.
I’ll watch for you. 🙂
I like the blasts from the past photos. That blue heron is my favorite especially since I spotted one near me. Your images always amaze me as if you give life to their personality.
Thank you, Martina. As I told another commenter, the Great Blue is also a favorite of mine. I appreciate your kind compliments. 🙂
I agree with all of you …Lots of people take photos of birds, but Bob your composition, lighting and whatever else you do, is magnificent. I love the Nashville Warbler..and the other photos are primo..
Thanks so much, Syl. I really appreciate your kind comments. Your compliments are overwhelming. I hope I can continue to live up to them. 🙂
Most all the birds have left from the mountains, I’ll still catch sight of a cardinal, a few hawks and some Herons down by the river. I’ve placed feeders out but not many birds visit.
Last couple nights I’ve heard an owl, think I’ll get out there tonight and see if I can locate him/her if this rain lets up.
Great photos as always.
Thanks for the great comment, Raven. I hope you can get to see the owl and maybe get a photo.
These are great Bob! I always look forward to your posts!
Thanks very much, Davis. I am glad you are enjoying my posts. 🙂
Thank you very much, Nandini. You, Xandi, and my other bloggers sure make me feel good. I will strive to live up to your expectations. 🙂
Bob do you have any photos of a Bob white. I have not seen one in a long time. That may not be the correct name but seems as though that is what everyone called them. Thanks Carolyn
Yes, Carolyn, I do have photos of the Northern Bobwhite. Watch for some in the next few days. Thanks for the request.
You could show a photo of a Great Blue every day, and I’d be a happy person. 🙂 Thanks, Bob!
You and me both. The Great Blue Heron is one of my favorites and I see them almost everyday. Thanks for the comment, Katie.
I need to get a better camera – or else get your tuition. How about coming over for a coffee tomorrow morning? I wish!
It’s not the camera. I’d like to make it there but………
Very nice gallery Bob! Excellent subjects! Good photography!
Thank you very much, H.J.
Fantastic shot Bob!! Love the American Pipit!!
Greetings and keep on!!!!
Thanks, Xandi, I appreciate it.
thanks Bob! I think you’re one of the best photgraphers in your age!
Wow! What a great compliment. Thanks, Xandi. 🙂
I completely agree with Xandi here. You’re amazing and inspiring, Bob.
And, great photos from the past. 🙂
