California birds in action. I captured small birds hunting insects. The crow that is free falling is actually chasing down some insect. There is a small spec in the frame which is the soon to be lunch of crow. I am always fascinated by nature and the abilities of wildlife. Although the hawks in the video are hovering, sad to say I did not see any take a dive. Maybe Next time. All footage shot in a 4 hour time bracket.

I have an REI backpack. Inside of it I put a canon hand bag which I shove my secondary lenses and other equipment. I have a low pro slingshot type bag with the camera in it on my side. It goes over the shoulder and wraps around the back of the backpack. This makes it so that my camera is easy to get too in the event that something wild pops out without notice. I use the straps on the backpack to take the tripod up. The set up is quite comfortable and I can take all equipment with me. My goal is to do a 2-4 day trek somewhere with everything I need to get some wildlife video. I have always wondered how the pros do it, and I have not seen much on how to pack and how much gear each person is taking.

I will write more about the set up as I take photos and expand my site.


****quick note*****Footage shot on a 7d and a 70-300 L. Basically a test run and a learning experience. I had taken a fluid head tripod with me, but aiming at birds with a fluid head tripod was harder to do then anticipated.
