Angry Bird

Nikon D3 / Nikkor 85mm ~ 1/8000th * f/1.4 * ISO 200 * ~ FR


Had a really nice day at Kew gardens yesterday. Just started to use our membership pass which I am more and more happy I bought. This is such a nice place for photography!


After hearing some birds fighting we went to investigate and I found this moody swan. He was not happy with any other bird being on his lake, after pushing out all the Canada geese he did this epic display for me, luckily I had the camera pointed at him by this point.


I can't belive that even after talking about the ND filter that very morning I forgot to take it... again! Stuck on 1/8000th again, I still think these camera's should go either down to ISO 12 or up to 1/64000th shutter speed. Maybe when we can control depth of field in post it won't matter.
