Bird in Flight Nightmares…no more…


Bird in Flight Nightmares…no more…
Photographing birds in low light with fog is scary enough, add to that flying from open sky to low contrast trees…nightmare. That was the situation yesterday morning as I photographed the Berry College Eagles. It was socked in with fog, and the sun still was not very high in the sky. The female started in a tree breaking branches for the nest, but then flew through an open area before entering an area with trees as a background. I was super impressed with the lens’s ability to stay focused for the entire time, as well as the camera (D-500) to keep shooting frames as I panned with the Eagle. The lens and camera could easily have gotten lost in the patterns and lack of light, but it stayed with it. Not one frame out of focus!
