Hello Linda, thanks for leaving a comment on my web site. You got really fantastic shots of juvenile bald eagle, osprey, and GBH on this gallery. I do not think I saw you when I was in El Doradol last year. I was there only two times. I think you have a great eyes for landscape as well, and you should not limit youself to birds photography IMOH.
I would have a Ball there!! great shots.. Tony
Super shots Linda, particularly the El Dorado BE and the BC Reddish. BTW, I'd e-mailed the folks with the Catalina BEs and their thinking was the El Dorado BE could have been from the Lake Hemet nest you mentioned, as there was a successful hatching in 2008. Keep up the stellar work, and hope to see you out in the field!
All wonderful captures, Linda! :)
Hi Linda! Great captures of both birds, particularly the Reddish Egret fishing.
Cool shoot! Always enjoy looking at your images.
My photos are simply shadows of yours ;D
Hi Nick, I don't know if I should post this here or at your albums...so you see I answered you. My 40D shot fairly fast if I was in the 1/1600 sec range, but I did notice the FPS slowed down at like 1/800 or so. I don't shoot raw because in aiservo it can hang up FPS while writing to the card after about 6 shots. I just bought some San Disk IV's because they write a little faster. Deedee shoots in both raw and jpg and hers did stop shooting at crucial times occasionally, even on the MK III. I'm still trying to figure out aiservo on the MKIII, it can misfocus like 4 in a row. Very annoying and I lose confidence is shooting. Many times if I know I only have one take off of a bird I'll shoot One shot and just refocus every 2 flaps. The aiservo is not any better on the MKIII than the 40D, maybe because 10FPS is too fast for it to track well. Dunno.
Just wondering, when you shoot action are you shooting both a raw and a large jpeg simultaneously? I have been running into trouble with the camera hesitating after 3-4 shots. According to the specs the 40D is capable of 6.5fps. Perhaps what I am experiencing is the best the camera can do?
