I am so glad that I have been taking the time to learn how to get some good images from my CANONEOS7D because I had an “opportunity of a lifetime” at least in my bird picture taking life to capture pictures during a termite nest hatching in Prospect Park yesterday. There were so many amazing hard to find shy birds within inches of me paying absolutely no attention to me and my camera. I did need to use my Canon Speedlite 580EX II flash because it was really dark. The CANONEOS7D multi focus point focusing mode worked magnificently in this situation where I the birds were close up and there were not many branch or leaf obstructions.
I realize I need to learn more about the flash now – I had put this on the back burner.
