    I take it this is cropped way down, so it's a bit soft, but wow what amazing subject matter to have captured!!! How on earth did you get this shot??

    Yep its way cropped down and also I blew a hard worked for shoot. I got a ton of these after setting up a remote in a 12 foot tall hide. It was very foggy this morning when I set up the remote and allmost all were over exposed. :thumbdown: I used a 200mm lens on tripod trigg with a wizard from far far away. My neighbor is using a 400 and 1.4 converter so hope better results for him.

    Wow!!

    Great work with the hide. Did the birds try to bombard you while you were setting up? Is there just one chick? I'm hoping you're able to take periodic shots as the chick(s) grow up. Very exciting

    Wonderful shots to get and a great set-up :)
    hope to see many more shots of the over the comming weeks/days/months of these birds!

    Out of interest have you considered renting a longer lens for a week or so - with a set-up like this and the chance for such scenes it would be worth thinking about

    Yep I sure have gave it a thought. A 400 or 600 might do a trick or two.

    Or move the hide closer by putting big pads on the bottom feet and stick it in the creek. How FAR will I go to get the shot:mrgreen: LOL
