Female Lesser Scaup – Low angle in Flight

Post on December 14, 2014 Scaup Duck BirdsWaterfowl

I’ve been doing some BIF on fast diver – lesser scaup with success. So it’s time to move on for more physically challenged Ground Level Tracking flyer. If you think tracking this guys is hard on normal viewing angle, try do it laying flat on the ground. It’s a neck straining and back aching, most uncomfortable panning i’ve ever done.

A trip to chiropractor is much needed after couple hours of action but i recommend some extra strength pain killers if you are obsessed with this sort of works.

This is uncropped full frame and i nearly clip the wing there! Wimberly gimbal head plus Kirk Mighty Low-Boy were used for support.
