The Family Goes Out...(3 pics)...

joanmnFebruary 17, 2007

well, maybe not family, but some probably unrelated sandhill cranes.

Practicing walking in step.


The whole bunch.


Ready for my close-up.


All with Canon Digital Rebel XTi, Canon 75-300mm USM IS lens.

Maybe they were doing the goose step?!

Very nice photos! I can't pick a favorite, I like them all!

I see flocks of these every spring and fall but have never attempted to take pictures of them. Not that I wouldn't like to but I usually see them on a busy road. Out in the pumpkin fields. You captured some very good shots.

I do believe in framing and matting. Now you have several and that would look great in a setting on your wall. Need to choose the best place to put it. But, do as pleases you, it's a lovely set of shots.

Thanks. I am going to frame the middle one, and a picture of a roseate spoonbill and cattle egret, some nice Florida birds.

That middle one was my favorite too.

I also have the Rebel XTi, 400D. Works great. How do you like your IS lens?

the 75-300mm IS USM is fairly sharp, it has a replacement, the 70-300mm IS USM, that is supposed to be much sharper.
