When Things Work Out For You
In early February I was walking down the trail at the Celery Bog trying to find birds on the ground. I stopped to take everything in and see what was around me. At first I didn’t see anything on the side of the trail where I thought that the light was the best. Then of course I look right above me and there was a red-tailed hawk just sitting on a branch. It was very chill with me so I moved down the trail so that I could make photos with the light. The bird let me move over, and even seemed to pose for me. It seemed like it knew that after a couple of photos that I would move on, which I did.
Using The Sony A7R4 For Birds
This was the day when I realized just how great this camera was. You can see my full frame photo just above. I was able to crop into the photo enough that you have the photo at the top of the post. Even with a heavy crop you have amazing detail. With that detail though comes the downside that your flaws as a photographer are exposed much more. You have to really focus on your technique when using this camera. I really can’t wait to see what I can do with it when the warblers pass through.
