Last Saturday, I had to attend a duck blind drawing (long story in itself )so Molly got up and went to one of her favorite places to take small bird photos by herself. She had the 500mm F4 attached to her Canon 40D and was trying out a new Apex Low Profile bean bag. The area has a gate that does not open until around 7am and she was there waiting. Normally, I set her camera up and tell her when the Exposure Compensation needs to change. She was on her own and from the look of these image’s exposure, she nailed it!
On her way out, she saw George Goeken ( “Honorary Mayor of Riverlands Migratory Bird Sancturary”) photographing the sunflower field at the juncture of Red Schoolhouse Road and Riverlands Way aka Jones Road. She knows to follow George’s lead when it comes to finding photo opportunities. As you can see, she got some excellent images.
