Heavy Lifting at Base Camp

Working Bosque entails cruising the loops and making images happen. You can go around and around and around and never make a single click and then you find a bird T’d up just waiting for you. It’s the ultimate Easter Egg hunt. Today was one of those days when we just kept finding cool little surprises. In the process of making the image, setting up the tripod just isn’t possible, no time and no way to move around without scaring the subject. So shooting over the hood, handholding the 600mm is the only way to make the image. Here’s some example of today’s heavy lifting.

A great day of shooting and again, it just took one bird to make my day!
