All images: 19 Feb 2016, Nikon D3000, on auto, cropped
I’ve heavily cropped the images to show off the clouds. I love the layers.
The whistling kite is a medium-sized diurnal raptor found throughout Australia, New Caledonia and much of New Guinea. Also called the whistling eagle or whistling hawk, it is named for its loud whistling call, which it often gives in flight.
These are some of the first photos I took with my new-to-me Nikon D3000. I was pleased with the results,considering I was just using it as a point-and-shoot, on auto, and with the settings as it arrived.
I’ve since reset something and nearly jumped out of my skin when the shutter went off as I touched it. I reckon it must have been on a 2sec delay before. I’ve also discovered the fast multiple shoot mode – where I can take consecutive shots with one push. That might come in handy for birds, though I have to get the focus right. LOL. I took two photos of the cockies on the fence and each time one of them had a really blurry head as they moved.
I downloaded a manual, but haven’t read it yet. Might help, I’m sure.
Have a good day. 😀
