May 31, 2011 :: Blurred Geese
I was taking some pictures of the sunrise Monday morning (http://themales.smugmug.com/Nature/Clouds/16795842_TxXQ2G#1315082592_qQP8HKX-A-LB to see other images) when these geese made a pass. I tried to make a quick decision and ended up just leaving the shutter speed and hoped for the best.
I am curious what suggestions you have for getting these geese sharper and still getting the sunrise. Any ideas?
The storm the other day knocked out power at school, so my 3 day weekend turned into a 4 day. I'm hoping that those people without power can stay cool. Yesterday and today are in the 90's.

I took this yesterday as I was trying the different way to turn on AF. For those of you using Nikon: http://www.luminescentphoto.com/blog/2010/11/05/nikon-af-on-technique/
I saw 2 deer in the woods and they just kept watching me. I was hoping that they would take off running so I could see how this back button focusing would work but they didn't move. As soon as I turned to walk away they took off. I got one blurry picture mid-jump but at least I got some decent shots while they posed.
