"Birds at Mustang Island, TX"
Tue 04-Dec-12 02:53 PM by vangophotos

San Antonio, US
          

These were taken last weekend at Port Aransas and Mustang Island state park, Texas.
The weather was beautiful: 80F and no sign of winter. People were out fishing so I was able to get pretty close to the birds.

More pictures available at http://vangophotos.zenfolio.com/mustangisland_dec2012

These were all taken with a D7000 and 70-200 VR.

These are all excellent photos showing wonderful composition and control of DOF.The use of the reflections is noteworthy. All are fabulous. Richard

Nice shots.

Good focus on the eyes in #3. Nice panning as well.

Great shots especially with the 70-200, I would have thought a longer lens was needed to get such clarity and detail.

Port Aransas and Mustang Island are good spots for photographing birds from close range: these birds usually hang out near fishermen so they're used to being fairly close to people. At least close enough to use the 70-200 on a small sensor with 1.6 crop factor.

Once I drive out onto Padre Island, birds are far more shy so the 70-200 hardly gives me any usable shots (other than environmental shots).
