As I was photographing these Brant Ducks, I also shot a series of the flying birds for a panorama, to see how it might work out. I was surprised it pretty much just worked out fine with no retouching of overlapping Brants. I was using a m43 camera with a Panasonic 14-140mm lens @48mm. I started on the left and just shot a quick series going to the right. I always shoot the pano of flying birds in the direction they are going. Seems to work better that way. The files adjusted in Adobe Camera Raw and the panorama assembled & blended in Photoshop for the final image.
As I was photographing clouds along the Wildlife Drive at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division, this group of Brant Ducks took off. I thought it looked interesting as they flew over this little jetty of land in the water’s edge. Then they banked and flew farther to the right and over the Atlantic City Skyline you could see in the distance. The sky was constantly changing depending on which direction you were looking at. The cloud cover went from heavily overcast and ominous looking to blue sky with nice feathery clouds. But it did make for a wide variety of cloudscapes in one outing.
