Z9, 800mm PF on a bird hunt today
15

San Diego Egret from my bird hunt today.

I tried several different focusing modes and found the AFS wide area with animal eye detection was far superior and more consistent in this situation. I also tried a monopod with the Wimberly MH-100 monopod head. I found that too restrictive when trying to follow moving birds and impossible for BIF. I'm planning to go back to handheld with the Black Rapid shoulder strap.
