Egret in flight, motion blur

Egret in flight using slow shutter speed

Caption: Egrets in flight against dark background using slow shutter speed for motion-blur effect, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

Camera: Canon EOS 1D Mark II; Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM; Shutter speed: 1/25; Aperture: f/5.6; ISO: 400.

A couple more photographs experimenting with slow shutter speeds while photographing birds in flight, this time against a dark background. I’m sure these photographs will not be to everyone’s taste as they’re “all fuzzy and blurry”. But there’re plenty of wonderfully sharp images of birds on the wing, specially where the subject is something as mundane as a cattle egret, so for me it’s more fun trying to portray them differently, particularly as there’s no telling exactly how the pictures will turn out.
