November 2023 - Greylag Flight 4

About the Image(s)

Taken last month, again at my favourite Straws Bridge Lake, Ilkeston,
Derbyshire, UK. For a small lake, we get hundreds of geese, swans,
grebe, heron, egrets, mallards and goosanders to name a few. I visit so
often that I can usually guess when the geese are about to take off.

Usual equipment - Nikon D750, Sigma 150 - 500 (set at 500), Aperture
Priority, 1250 ISO, F9. Treated to Topaz AI.

Mike, has sharpness in critical areas and perfectly cropped. Every eye is perfect. Gorgeous flawless image caught at the peak of action! Outstanding!   Posted: 11/04/2023 12:11:03

Agreed, can't fault this one at all. Very nice. Catching the water splashes great, and managing to have all the faces showing, lucky.   Posted: 11/04/2023 20:48:56

Racing to get airborne! I imagine that made quite a clamor.

Great action shot, Mike. You captured this at the exact time, with perfect detail everywhere. I cannot suggest any improvements.   Posted: 11/14/2023 14:22:06
