The Great Divide

Uploaded: January 16, 2005


Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese supporting the notion that birds of a feather flock together! This shot is from my first outing with my new 20D; Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge; Canon 70-300 DO IS USM @ 300 mm with Tamron 2x extender; F 5.6 1/100s ISO 100; A couple birds cloned out of the background in PS; Feedback greatly appreciated!!!

I love the drama implied by this image. It's like "A West Side Story"...the Cranes vs. the Geese! Looks like a great outing and I look forward t oseeing more of your shots with your new equipment!! Congrats! #205945

Thank you Eric!!! Watching the birds at that ditch was hilarious! They all can fly, yet they would sit there thinking about it for several minutes before jumping the ditch! I had a blast with the new camera!
