Photos from the day

Went Kayaking the Humber River today. There was plenty of bird activity by the river to keep me occupied.

The Great Egret was my favourite to photograph. I was photographing this birds with a Micro 4/3 and was not able to do the adjustments on the settings to get good quality shots on time. Although I was using a speed over 1/1000 my flight shots were way off too. Might have been my short sleep and my lack of breakfast/lunch before I began kayaking that hindered my ability to take good shots. I suppose I was not so lucky to capture an action shot either. Nevertheless I enjoyed my session out in the water. I doubt doing a photography course is really going to make me get the shot any faster. Perhaps if I turn Pro in the future it might be of use, until then these would do on a hobby level.
