Yesterday near my house.
I have found that if there is a bit of wind, camera is very hard to keep stable, even on my nice tripod- the big lens is like a sail. I stood upwind and used a cable release, later I remembered there is a hook so I can hang something heavy to further stabilize the tripod. That will not help the windage issue much though.
These seem a bit fuzzy. Part of it may be I should have used a higher ISO so I could shorten the time the shutter was open. I tried a more open F stop to let more light in, but then I would often get the chest feathers in focus but not the eye. I guess it just seemed to me this ISO on a bright afternoon should be okay. I tend to rush, wanting to "just get the shot" and not take the time to think each setting through.
ISO 200, F13, 1/125
(Both of these are cropped about 50%)
Your geese look good! What were your settings? Here are my geese, I was in such a rush to "get the shot" I did not check the settings, I thought they were good but oh well- Just ISO 320, F11, 1/100. What an idiot. this one is not cropped.
