Nature and Wildlife

Here is that Exotic Bird in color with slightly lower ISO setting.

Equipment used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens, Nikkor 1.4 teleconverter (camera hand held, no flash).
Camera settings: F/4, 1/500sec, ISO 1000, focal length 280mm. Natural available light was bounced from the small pond of water this bird was drinking from.
As always, my images are copyright protected and available to you as wall art prints, wraps, and other merchadise. More info available on my “About” page. You can click on any of my images to see them in HIGH RES. Thanks for visiting!

    • Thank you so very much Terry! I have since upgraded my camera to a full frame Nikon D700, but my best advice to you….go for the quality glass first! High quality lenses can last a lifetime and are well worth the money invested. Cameras to me are only as good as their sensors, as your skills increase, then begin to upgrade your camera and investing in high quality lenses that will work with your camera as you upgrade. Thanks for the visit and the comment, please come back often!
