Motoring

This wood duck is photographed for the "camerasavvy-focus" tutorial, on-going right now.

The point of the exercise is to figure out how to access and use the auto focus tracking feature of your camera, to use it on a moving object. Flying birds are beyond my skill set, since I had never used this feature before, but I could keep up with swimming birds. ;) This wood duck was moving along and changing directions, so I was pleased that I (or at least my camera) could keep up with him. No cropping here, fyi, and pretty minimal processing for some clarity, etc.

Thanks for visiting and thanks to the knowledgeable folks who take time to write instructions and educate us. :)
A fantastic bird and fantastic shot.
