A Spoonbill coming in to join others in a marsh.

Typically catching two images before reeds get in the lens is pretty good.

Here there were four shots, number five was a big thick reed of course.

    1. Thanks, and thanks for visiting.

      A quick guess on speed is most likely 500. Much too slow but the activity and feeding is usually just after dawn… dark. I was using a monopod when shooting this, which I don’t recommend unless it’s dark and at a distance. I shoot wildlife like this full time so I get practice panning constantly. Spoonbills usually need no less than 1/800…and that’s pushing it.

      Thanks again.

  1. I like when the birds fly low and this Spoonbill does exactly that, it’s passing by so beautifully, so powerfully. Love these shots very, very much!
