I found some time and processed the rest of my Florida images. In total I had made around 25000 images there. Thereof I deleted about 17000 right away and have kept so far about 5000 images. Lately I found it helpful to make as many images as possible of a great moment and then Β rather delete some hundred images at the computer instead of missing “the” moment…

How do you handle it?


This weekend I had a blast. On Friday I was able to get the very secretly living Barred Warbler out on a sweet perch. The day after I found a very cooperative Eurasian Wryneck πŸ™‚

Low II

I found a few more examples. I think in the Little Blue Heron images we see the benefits quite dramatically, whereas the Great Egrets seem to look better with a higher angle. I thought these images might help to continue our little discussion from yesterday πŸ™‚

Here are two Great Egrets where I think the higher angle works. If you want to include reflections you have to be higher.

Here we see a super low Great Egret. It is too close to the camera, but you can see what I meant big “leg issue” With that low angle you have problems to keep the virtual legs….

With seeing these examples I think we can say that more or less eye level is the way to go πŸ™‚
