The Eyes Have It!
Birds in flight are a unique challenge. Unlike landscapes that give you the time to adjust your settings and explore different compositions or perspectives, flight images happen quickly. They are almost entirely reflexive when subjects are in close range. You have almost no time to think or adjust. You raise your camera, pan and shoot. You might have 3 seconds to capture the subject after waiting several hours. So, how do you know if your image is a success? There are many considerations. But I believe the eyes have it, meaning that if the eye is sharp, you have done your job. Today's image of a Black-crowned Night Heron was taken this summer at Cooper Marsh.
