Recent Dunlin images with Nikon D4s

Below are some juv Dunlin images taken in the last couple weeks at Carnsew Pool and Tresemple Pool.  They are taken with the Nikon D4s and 500mm F4, coupled up to the new 1.4x mk3 teleconverter.  The D4s is the most advanced camera Nikon have made to date.  I'm well used to using Nikon kit but this camera is a like an untamed stallion.  I'm taking a while to master it.  In particular the exposure is incredibly sensitive to perfect.  The 11 shot per second burst is nice though, as is the new spot focus system.

The spot focus on the eye is uber-accurate.

A flock of Dunlin at last light with nice reflections.  The spot focus locked on and didn't let go.
