Category: Birds 'n Animals
These cranes were spotted @ a lake abt 10kms from Mysuru towards Nanjangud on the NH212 aka Kozhikode/Ooty road. The colony was huge and apart from the birds in the pic, I also spotted a huge flock of Pelicans a little away, but failed to get any decent pics coz of the distance.
All pics are using my new Canon EF-L f/5.6 400mm lens @ ISO-100 and f/5.6 for exposures higher than 1/500s (anything lower would've caused blur @ 400mm). I did have the lens tripod mounted but didnt tighten it (except for the first pic) so that I can move it around to capture the flying birds.
