Hatching nest of duckings
May 8, 2009

A number of my shots of the baby robins were blurry because my shutter speed was too low. Lesson learned.

Yesterday the ducklings hatched and I did remember my lesson and shot them as high as 1600. The result was relatively sharp images.

All day the entire house was waiting for the mother to take them out of the nest to the pond, especially as we missed the first exodus. But she remained firmly seated. First thing this morning, I saw her out of the nest with all her chicks. I grabbed my camera and headed out. I looked at the light and figured 400 iso was fine.

I was wrong. I didn't even notice the light fading as clouds thickened. The result is blurry shots. Again.

Luckily for you, I'm going to post them anyway.
