Week 46, Day 324, March 18, 2010, The Geese Are Returning

The last several days have been beautiful, and it's feeling like spring.  The Canadian Geese are starting to return, or stop on their migration north.

The Geese around my house are not used to people.  When they see people they tend to move away, or fly away.  I used my 70-200mm lens on these two, and I had the 2x extender to make it a 400 mm lens.

Much of the landscape is still brown.  There are still some patches of snow, but they are melting quickly.

Lessons Learned:
  • Wind was a big factor today.  Many of the photos came out blurry because of the wind.  Perhaps a better tripod would help.  Any suggestions?
Photo details: Exposure time 1/100 sec, Aperture f/6.4, ISO 100, Focal Length 350 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM with EF 2x II Extender, tripod.

Try picking up a monopod... works wonders with telephoto lenses.
