  1. I have been quite busy of late with workshop clients, but thought I would post a few from this past weekend. The first birds that really start nesting this time of year in Florida are the Great Blue Herons. The colors and additional feathers really make for great photography subjects. These were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 300 f/4 AF-S, non VR, lens, handheld. I am off in 10 days to the Seattle area for three mornings of eagle photography down the Skagit River. This time of year with the end of the salmon run hundreds of eagles gather for the feast.

    (inspired by MikeG's heron on the roof) About a month ago I drove by this rookery on my way from work. I've visited this spot before, but never with a long enough lens, and now the situation is worse because a few of the closer nest trees fell over during a bad winter. This day I used a cobbled together rig of: Nikon 300mm f/4 AFS Nikon TC-17 E Novoflex F-Mount to Micro 4/3 adapter Olympus E-M5 Mk 2 Gitzo 3541 XLS tripod with RRS BH-55 (on a 35mm camera this setup would be 1020mm) Having finally figured out focus peaking on this camera (thanks Dallas!) I focused on the closest nest. I got this result when a cloud darkened the hillside beyond the pond, separating the herons from the background: While this image is acceptable at smaller sizes, it lacks detail when looked at closely - it seems smeared. I shot at ISO 800, 1/1600 sec., so maybe my shutter speed was too slow, but it may also be the lens & TC in combination with this sensor. I've been thinking that it might be interesting to revisit this site next year with a D500 and a rented 800mm f/5.5...
