The Stare

To capture this shot I was actually laying flat on the ground to get to the same leval of this bird. Photographed with the Sony A7RIV using the Sony FE 70-200mm F2,8 GM lens. Camera setting ere 1/1600 sec at f/4.0, ISO 200. Post processing with Adobe Lightroom Classic. Cheers!

Pelican Take Off

This Brown Pelican was about to take off from the bay near Fort Pickens on the West end of Santa Rosa Island in Florida. Captured this shot using the Sony A7RIV with Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. Camera setting for this handheld shot were 1/400 sec at f/6.3 with IOS 100.

Meal Time!

This seagull was enjoying a morning meal on the dock behind Joe Patti's Seafood & Market early this Sunday morning. With this shot I used the Sony A9 with the new Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens. Had the camera set to crop sensor mode to give me a 900mm reach. It only gave me a 10.53 MB file. Once I recieve the Sony A7RiV using the same setting will give me about a 26MB file. Camera setting were 1/500 sec at f/6.3, ISO 100 with camera mounted on a monopod. Post processing with Lightroom Classic and Skylum Flex. I will say so far even though I have only had this lens a couple of days I am enjoying using it. The tracking with this lens on the A9 is great. I do enjoy the internal zoom on this lens. Still need to do more testing. But overall it's definitely worth the price. Cheers!
