"Common Yellowthroat - D300s + 500P F4"


Plover, US
          

I went out yesterday after the 4th straight day of rainy weather to try to capture my second most difficult warbler. It has been a struggle to get a decent set of shots of these little guys.

Thanks for looking. . .

Nikon D300s, Aperture Priority, ISO 1000, +.7 EV, 1/800 sec. Nikkor 500P F4 manual focus, @ f9.0. Induro AT413 Tripod and BHD-3 Ball head.

Three great shots Al. They sure don't come out in the open like that for me. Nice shooting.

Top notch images, really like the first. Surprisingly noise free for 1000iso. Did you use some form of noise reduction in PP? Having a 400mmf3.5 manual focus lens myself, I can appreciate the skill and patience required to capture these elusive little buggers.

Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments Jack - coming from another manual focus lens Nikonian I know you definitely appreciate the challenges. As to the noise at 1000 ISO with the D300s, I merely use a small amount of noise reduction with Topaz Labs-DeNoise5, a plug in to Photoshop in my PP work flow.

Thanks again - - Al

Hi Al , just found your pictures and must say quite impressive, it's interesting how we both took pictures of the same bird in such different ecological circumstances as well as completely different parts of the world I mean I can not even come close to recognizing what kind of tree your yellow-throats are perched in, my being in Canada on the border of Alaska
nevertheless I can see you enjoyed your shooting experience as much as I did, very nice

Thanks so much Michael - I've enjoyed your images as well. These guys were perched in some sort of willow brush and in fact the "blooms" are over matured willows of some sort. My part of the world is about 100 miles south of Lake Superior in north central Wisconsin.
They are indeed fun and yet challenging subjects to be sure . . . especially trying to stay on focus with a 500P!
