BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

ON THE WING (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

22 Comments

I came across the first image when I was looking for some Canada Geese photographs for a recent post. I haven’t taken many birds in flight and hadn’t remembered taking this one.  The geese were beginning their fall migration so if you pointed your camera towards the sky there were a lot of opportunities to try and capture them. My 300mm lens at F 5.6 worked in my favour and I was pretty pleased with the result.
The Great Blue Heron was on a fishing expedition and landed shortly after I took this photo. Always a favourite subject of mine on land or in the air.

  2. Both nice but I especially like the geese. All are in focus. That’s really hard to do since they are always at different distances from the camera (no matter how it looks). The lower the f stop the worse it gets. These are great.

  3. Hard to capture these birds in flight. We have both the heron and Canada gees at a local lake, but I have yet to capture any good shots of them.

    Very nice work.

  6. They make flight look easy, and you make crisp photographs look easy. Lovely, Belinda.

  7. Great shot! Nice lift off splash in the water and the bonus of what looks like a Wood Duck in the water below the Geese.

  8. The photo of the heron is so informative-one can really see how he bends his neck up and he’s looking right at the camera!-awesome image.

  9. I can almost hear those geese honking about their departure. Always the noisiest group on the pond aren’t they. 🙂 Great images Belinda!
