"Chestnut Luck - D7100 +300 AF-S + 1.4"


Plover, US
          

I headed north to the cabin this morning to get the lawn mowed . . .while waiting for the grass to dry a bit I grabbed the camera and went in search of my nemesis - the Chestnut Sided Warbler. I have enough "almost good" shots of these little speed demons to fill a garbage can!
Never could get what I wanted . . . UNTIL TODAY!!

This was very early in the morning with heavy overcast sky, so ISO was at 1250 and all are shot full frame..

Thanks for looking. . . Al

Nikon D7100, Aperture Priority, ISO 1250, + 1/3 EV, Nikon 300 F4-S + 1.4 Kenko, @ f/8, Induro AT 413 Tripod, and BHD-3 Ball head.

Just excellent Al! That's the way to deal with a nemesis. Now, if only I could do that with the common yellow-throat.

Thanks Francine - Very minimal cropping - less than 10%. I am super impressed with the 300 AF-S. It works really well with the 1.4 Kenko converter as well.

very enjoyable and also to read about your good luck

had to laugh at your anecdote of the garbage can of almost good shot = "bad luck"
we can all hear the "beep, beep" of that truck backing up
