How about back button focus and AI Servo?

I used both of these. Clearly I just need some practice.

Flash didn't work, but a tripod helped. Cropped.

QUOTED IMAGE

Nice! I love the implied motion in the wings.

I guess a tripod would help a lot. I always leave mine at home because I figured it would be too difficult to move around with a tripod. Come to think of it, I do have a great monopod. Maybe I should try that some time :-)

I actually used a gorillapod. And I used it as a monopod since I needed to keep moving with the bee.

The gorillapod has been great for travelling; For those shots of just the wife and I, where I'd rather not ask someone else to take it. It's also handy that you can wrap the legs around almost anything. Bend it up and it will fit in your bag.

The big question now is if it's strong enough to hold the 60D. I haven't tested that much yet. I just got the 60D a couple of weeks ago.

The thing that strikes me in the shot of those 7 Twins players is that only 3 of them were somewhat engaged in the National Anthem. :( If that was what was going on at the moment.

I'm amazed by the sharpness of this lens. It's too bad you don't see any many portraits in here.
