Learning can come from a wide range of sources, and for me there were some lessons this morning after deleting 1049 files.

This short article features a selection of photographs of an Irish mallard in-flight. These were captured during our photography field trip to Ireland in the spring of 2019. While the main objective of our trip was to capture landscape and rural images, I took a Nikon 1 V3 fitted with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 with me just in case I had the opportunity to photograph some wildlife.
Yesterday morning I went out to photograph some ducks in flight. I decided to use a Nikon 1 V3 fitted with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens. This article features a selection of Nikon 1 V3 ducks in flight images captured handheld.
Between client assignments, eBook projects and field testing some Olympus Loaner Gear, I haven’t had much time lately to use my Nikon 1 kit for bird photography. On Wednesday morning I spent a couple of hours with an old friend… the Nikon 1 V3 equipped with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom.

The 10 consecutive images that follow were captured in 1/6th of a second. Continue reading Egret Taking Flight at 60 FPS
