Sandhill Crane

May 15, 2019

Best birds on the planet. On my way home there were two on one side of the road and eight on the other so I pulled off to watch them a bit and took a few pictures. This one in the pair was displaying for a bit jumping around and throwing their head back.

Captured with the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV and Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x III on May 13, 2019 at 6:41 PM. I used AI Servo AF mode and multi-segment metering. Auto WB setting.

Raw processed in DPP4. NR and sharpening in PS. Cropped and cloned out their partner entering the frame (sorry!).

Canon-1D Mark IV
700mm · f/5.6 · 1/400s · ISO 100
