Wildlife / Birding Photography Viera Wetlands Florida Nikon 200-500mm

I visit a very popular birding location in south Florida called Viera Wetlands and I find tons of great wildlife. From ospreys eating tilapia to turtles laying eggs and more.

  1. Hi Mark, being a birding lover I really love to watch your videos. I have two questions to you 1) for birding is d500 with 200-500mm is good choice? And 2) whatever birds pictures you showed, is all post edited?

  2. Hi there Mark. Your videos are addictive hence decided to check the old one like the above. By the way thanks for your reply this morning. I wanted to seek a technical clarification from you. Nowadays you use the D850 and earlier you used D500. I see most of your pictures are – 0.3 exposure compensation. You also explained the reason for this which I understand. Is it a camera feature to blow out the highlights and do you also face the same difficulty in your D850 or is it your technique to dial down the compensation. Cant you do the same in your post production while keeping neutral exp comp. Thanks once again for your lovely video and narration.

  3. Man I'm so jealous that you can get so close to herons and egrets there. I go to a wildlife/wetland reservation and if a heron or egret catches sight of you within a city block they're GONE. From my experience I thought they had to be the most wary bird/animal in existance!

  4. Thank you for your excellent video , Just to let you know you how inspiring it is watching your channel . Putting the exif information on your pictures is so helpful to an amateur who wants to improve, it makes me want to get out there and take some more pictures . Here in the UK the Winter Weather is holding me back a bit but i here you have Snow in Florida for the first time in 30 years . Good luck with your Photography

  5. Nice video . Incredible resolution from the D500 … close to the D850!, but whats about the battery life.? I owned the d500 times but the battery consumption was very high. So I brought her back and change to a D810. But I'm still in love with the D500 🙁

  6. Mark bear in mind when the camera says you've lost highlights it is judging the image on it's in built jpeg preview. in reality I'm guessing you are using NEF raw files which have much greater exposure lattitude  and the image may very likely not have any lost image data. cheers
