On a shoot with Edgar Thissen again

Filed under: April — Hennie van Heerden @ 7:03 am

This time Edgar and I went especially for the Dutch native birds; Redshank and Ruff. Got some pretty cool shots of both birds so went home happy. The red and green background of the Redshank to the left was formed by a red tiled roof with some bushes in front of it. The telephoto DOF effect which you get with shooting with an aperture of f5.0 came in handy here. The left Redshank reminded me of an elegant ballerina when she came trotting straight towards my lens. And to top things off, the Ruffs were showing full mating season regalia.  Also the Ducks were quite active. A little too active for my taste, at least the males were. This lady had a tough day with the two males competing for her favours. Had a lovely day!
