taking off

trying a 300mm lens (from Chris) for the first time. It's not easy to follow those guys when they take off :-)


OSP:cropped, applied unsharp mask and corrected colors with GIMP.


This photo was taken at the TPMG ( event to shoot the lunar eclipse on Saturday March 3rd. We got together at the mouth of the Humber River (west of Toronto) and while me, Chris and Mike were still waiting for more people, I decided to try Chris' 300mm lens doing some bird shooting. It was my first attempt at shooting a bird in flight and I was pretty lucky as I got two shots with the duck in the frame. This one was the less blurry so I decided to post it :-)
