HI Len: I was fortunate that the bird turned its head a bit and reduced the
distance that had to be in focus, and it was also sitting still. 1/80 sec.
At F:10 so no room for movements. If you go to the website and look at the
last picture, you will see that it is a different angle and I faced the same
challenge you mention. However, the tail was a minor part of the image and
does not really seem to matter very much. It was also F:10 but at 1/30 sec
so no capacity to deal with a bob or a blink.

Most of the stops were +2/3 wider than metered exposure and then I dealt
with final exposure in Lightroom.

My problem is always getting the right aperture to get the tail and beak in
focus at such close quarters.  You have done it here Rick.  Very nice.

See you in the field

I went on a little expedition up Tranquille Creek to photograph Dippers
today. The attached photo is one of only 2 that were keepers. But if you
wish to read about the whole saga and see a few landscape pics, drop by this
