… I got this shot of a Black Hawk about a tenth of a second after he launched from a branch just behind him. I had a clear shot of him when he was perched on the tree limb and the system tracked him and the focus stayed on him and not the now intervening branches which were blocking part of his head and his right wing … a very cool function of the new focus system in the 1DX MK III.
Usually I like to do some tree trimming and de-clutter the image, but it was not possible with this photo … anyhow I like it and he simply wheeled away from the area and went elsewhere in search of a meal.
Talked with the daughter of a long time friend this morning and I have a package coming later this week that should bring some memories back. Over 60 years ago I left my USAF footlocker with this friend and his daughter found it a while ago … it weighs fifty pounds so I’m wondering what all is in there … be a fun surprise.
Busy day coming up so will shut this down and get some sleep … have a beautiful day, keep breathing and smile.
