I took these during the midday sun, today. By bouncing a flash off a big piece of white mat board lying on the ground under the birds, I was able to get some light on their undersides without blasting them directly into the eyes.

D800 w70-200vr. 1.7tc. SB-800 Speedlight/w/extension cord, tripod. f6.7, 1/1250s, 800 iso.

Thanks for looking,

Tom
