Now that my trip to the Eastern Sierras chasing Fall color is out of my system I’m turning my mind and focus on the winter migration and the birds that will be flocking to the Central Valley. Some Sandhill Cranes have already arrived as well as a small flock of White Pelicans. We saw the Sandhill Cranes, but they are ever shy and kept far away from the observation areas so, I didn’t get the shot I have envisioned this time around.
As you know the bulk of what I shoot is landscape so shooting flying birds is something I have to relearn as well getting my camera settings worked out!
I struggled yesterday with camera settings! Thankfully 2 good friends helped me out or I wouldn’t have had one sharp shot.
I’ll be practicing a lot between now and Jan. when most the migrating birds are here. Hopefully I’ll have a better keeper rate by then. My keeper rate from yesterday is down right embarrassing!
