Not really a panorama but actually
4 images of the same egret taken in succession as it flew
through the trees at 5 frames per second. Ran the 4 images
through Panorama Maker a couple times and came up with the
above image. No skill, just luck.
Actually, any one of the four
images stands on its own. It's very seldom that a
bird will fly towards you and then turn allowing the
photographer to capture a number of successive images.
Typically, the bird is flying away from me as fast as it
can. I can't count high enough all the bird butts
that I've captured and deleted.
Used a 200-400 VR zoom
at approximately 400 mm mounted on carbon fiber tripod.
Exposure was determined by matrix meter under exposed by
1/3rd stop to reduce overexposing the whites on the egrets.
