Shooting out of a car is not conducive to birding at all, worse for action, but still managed a few of interest.
Here's a few from Namibia and Botswana.

These guys have such long toes, they can walk on lily pads!

O-kay, so I could get close to some of the perching birds, like this beautiful Carmine BeaEater :)

as expected..... incredible. That eagle is wonderful.. I could barely tell that it had anything in it's claws and you got soo much detail!! (but I think you were on the right side of the car at the time)..

Nice set of exotic looking birds and very different. The last two images though are suffering from compression artifacts.

I could sum it up in just one word... Fantastic.
I just love that first picture. The hovering of the kingfisher is a great angle of the bird. Well done.

Wonderful shots. That bee eater is exceptional!

How did the MkIII perform for you overall?

OK I have to ask what does (GAPS) stand for?
I have been viewing and learning on here for sometime now but this is baffling me.

Nice to see some different species of birds here. I wish the bee eater had more DOF.
