Successful Fishing Strike at 60FPS

Due to very high water levels in Lake Ontario, shore birds and wading birds have been avoiding their usual fishing spots this spring. About 10 days ago I spotted my first Great Blue Heron at Hendrie Valley. It put on quite a show for me. This article shares a series of 20 consecutive images of a successful fishing strike at 60 FPS.

Adapting to a Changing Birding Environment

After my wife and I arrived at our resort in Cuba in late January,  the first thing we did after dropping off our bags in our room, was visit the wetland area adjacent to the hotel. During our previous visits to this resort, the area had been a terrific spot for birding and bird photography.

This year my challenge was adapting to a changing birding environment. Continue reading Adapting to a Changing Birding Environment

New Zealand Fantail at the Blue Spring

I had to chuckle to myself for heeding my own advice during our most recent visit to New Zealand! In our eBook New Zealand Tip-to-Tip, I suggested having two cameras ‘at-the-ready’ (one for landscapes and one for birds) just in case an opportunity arose when visiting the Blue Spring. As luck would have it I had a very brief close encounter with a New Zealand Fantail at the Blue Spring. Continue reading New Zealand Fantail at the Blue Spring
