I was stalking a small Green Heron at the local Sourland Mountain Preserve trying to get some images of it catching a fish or frog. All of a sudden there was a commotion in the middle of the pond. Two Canada Geese started a full out smackdown. It was like a junior high school fight. The other geese in the pond formed a circle and made noises supporting their team. The small Green Heron didn’t know what to think.
I used the images I took (Nikon 1 V2 camera, FT1 adapter, and 180 mm f/2.8D lens) to create a short time-lapse video. The burst mode with the Nikon 1 V2 camera was really useful to get lots of images in a short period of time with all of the activity.
Springtime in New Jersey. Sourland Mountain Preserve.
I had gone for a walkabout at the Sourland Mountain Preserve. There was a family of Canada Geese swimming in the pond near the parking lot. After trying a number of different angles, I finally managed to catch them in formation. Image taken with a Nikon 1 V1 + FT1 adapter + 70-200 mm f/2.8 VRII lens (ISO 400, 200 mm, f/5.6, 1/320 sec). FOV = 540 mm with a 35 mm sensor.
