Undoubtedly the f stop has to be taken care of.

Need to get caught up on this thread - haven't posted any for a few months now, but I'm still seeing and shooting a lot of different birds. Here's some of the diversity so far the past few months:

ISO 400
1/25 sec (yes, I had to take some shots in order to get one that was sharp enough but it was just too dark and I still didn't want to increase the ISO)

Does anyone know what kind of bird this is? I found it in the Kowloon park in Hong Kong.

It looks like a type of bittern, or possibly a type of night heron. My guess might be a yellow bittern or black bittern, both common in southern Asia.

Nice set Zack, I think for sharper shots with moving birds you need at least 1/1000-1/1500s. I has a look at some he exif''s and the ISO on some around 1000, guess it must have been very low light for that to happen. If you have any type of filter on the lens for protection, try some shots with it off, maybe it will give enough more light to increase the speed.

Loved also the variety of birds. 8)


Cheers

"Snowy-crowned Robin-chat" is the name I found for this cute little bird.

Thanks 4xxxx - It was indeed the limitations of the light - no filters or anything in the way. I just always enjoy going out to shoot birds, even if the weather isn't so hot. If I encounter gray weather, low light, etc, I just keep the aperture wide open and crank up the ISO as needed, and keep shooting. Sometimes I need to keep the shutter speed a little lower for in-flight shots - I typically look for 1/500 at a minimum, and 1/1000 to 1/4000 if possible - but if the light isn't there, I'd still enjoy getting the shot, even if I get a little wingtip blur or have to shoot at ISO1600 or 3200 and get flatter light in gray, rainy skies. Our weather in Florida changes daily - actually, it changes from hour to hour, sometimes minute to minute - we can go from dark black thunderstorms making the light almost like nighttime, to grey overcast flat light, to bright sunny skies inside of 15 minutes.
