I just might need to road trip up there! Nice shots! Thanks!
Thanks Roger! You should. They are pretty active in the morning and late afternoon. Good luck. 🙂
such amazing raptors. they transfix me as do your incredible photos~
Thanks so much Cindy. 🙂
Wow!! Amazing in-flight photos, Alison. So far I haven’t had the opportunity to photographs these beautiful raptors very close. Most of the time I have seen them here they have been almost out of range for me. But someday…… 🙂
Thanks Bob. I am having loads of fun working on BIF photography. The 7dMII is an amazing tool for this. Using the 100-400 II with it and it is a dream combo. Very fast. I may stop lusting after the 300mm f/2.8 😉 Thanks as always for stopping in and for the kind words. I wish you luck with getting close.
The last two photos are superb. The lighting is just right, especially as it filters through the feathers, and the angles show all the special characteristics of this bird. Nice work!!
Thank you Alli. I was happy with those two as well. Wish the light was hitting the face in them a bit more. It is hard to hit every button. 😉
That’s just stunning! Well done!
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed them. 🙂
Great shots. I love that lighting! Where is Swan Lake? We are going to be heading up towards the Reno area soon I think, and would to visit it.
Thanks Keevan. It is in the north valleys. You take the Lemmon Valley exit off 395. Google it and you find all kinds of information. The http://nevadaaudubon.org/ provides good information, directions etc. 🙂
Thank you! I’ll research it.
Incredibly beautiful shots !
Thank you Uthamz. 🙂
I do like your shots…You seem to be comfortable with that new Tamron
Thanks, I have been using the canon 100-400 for the bif shots as I found the Tamron 150-600 just a wee heavy and slower focus for tracking fast flying birds.
Lovely series of photos.
Thank you for looking and the generous comment. 🙂
Beautiful shots! Beautiful birds! 🙂
Thanks Calee! 🙂
Lovely!!! Maybe the wide open spaces make it easier to spot them? Though you do need that long lens, for sure!
Thanks Lori. They love this particular swamp area. I am excited about the possibilities with nesting, fledglings and all that. 🙂
Thanks Cindy. 🙂
You make me feel like I’m flying along side them.
Thanks Tom. That is a wonderful reaction. 🙂
Thanks Gabi and Dave! 🙂
These are so cool! Your pictures seriously deserve their own art exhibit at the art museum. Don’t they have a yearly “feature a local artist” thing? If so, I hope that you will enter your work.
Incredible. Especially those in-flight photos. Wow! 🙂
Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. 🙂
