Lovely!Pretty confusing with the Red-crowned Crane (Grus japonensis). I would love to lay my hands on your camera :-) Seems very powerful.
Dear Tongyal and Yeshey,I guess it is coupled with camera and the photographic skills that Yeshey possesses leading to such wonders.I would love to hear on your camera, if you do not mind sharing.Cheers.
Hi Tongyal,Yea the lens used was a 500mm f/4 but also bit of luck was involved to have been able to approach the crane so close.Sangay, the camera that shot the image (BNC) is as follows:Body : Canon 10DLens : Canon EF 500mm f/4 IS USMTripod: GitzoTripod Head: Wimberley GimbleCF Card: SanDisk Extreme 4GBI am now using:Body : Canon 50DLens : Canon 800mm f/5.6 IS USMTripod : GitzoTripod Head : Wimberley GimbleCF Card : SanDisk 8GB Extreme
........ come to think of it, even the image of the Hoopoe was shot with 10D. They are my earliest images. I love that camera body :)-
