Fly By

One of my favorite images from the Llano Seco Unit of the Sacramento National Wildlife refuge was of this flock of Pintails that did a fly by. Pintails are such a thing of beauty when they fly. They look like flying torpedoes. I was using my Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS L V.1 lens which is nice and fairly light for photographing flying waterfowl. I was shooting at one stop over the metered exposure so the birds wouldn't be overexposed against the bright blue sky. Normally I would use fill flash as well to bring out the eyes and knock down the shadows but I forgot my batteries in my other back pack. It pays to check twice and pack once which obviously I didn't do! God's love and blessings upon your week, chris #TeamCanon
