Shooting Birds in Flight (Snowy Owls)

NEW PICTURES, with new settings!!

As promised, we went back out to try and spot these magnificent creatures, and applied tips provided to us by Wildlife Photographer, Chris Dodds.  Just goes to show, you can't by experience!

As expected, the speed needed to be increased considerably, and even if the it was a strong overcast day, the images turned up tack sharp.  All we needed to do was make good use of the available high ISO "noise-free" range on these Canon 1Dx camera bodies.

We used a multitude of lenses to capture the pics you'll seer by following the link to our website folder.  Canon 70-200mm f/2.8, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8, 400mm USM IS II f/2.8.

This will most likely have been our last outing this year, as our "models" will most probably be heading back out to colder fronts within the next few days.  Third time was the charm! :)

Here's the link to the new IMAGES
