E-M1ii Birds (pics)
15

I've been going to Walden ponds every sunny morning, refining my technique. Thanks to many of you for help with this. Lately I've been using A mode at f8 and ISO 400, letting the camera adjust the speed. BIF were mostly 1/2000th, which I do like. Slower when they are near or in the water. I was using Auto ISO in M mode with 1/2000th and f7.1, and I may go back to that.

I'm now using a RRS FG-02 fluid gimbal head and love it. I just can't shoot at 840mm hand held, and love good, smooth support.

Here are a few of my recent favorites.

Snowy Egret

Caught a big fish!

The above 4 shots are from a pretty cool 52 shot GIF of the bird flying in and then catching the fish. You can see it here .

Then more geese and cormorants:

This cormorants shot is from another GIF here .
