It's been very cold out tonight, and has been hail stoning too, and there is plenty of that around on the ground. I think it may have been the reason this wolfie stayed and posed for a couple, but I had to crop in the end, as I couldn't get the lens any closer because of the ring-flash and the lump of stone she was on, plus it was at near ground level, and my knees and the cold floor don't get on very well any more... :)

Yup. I only brought my 24 STM for the trip. You have to get pretty close with that lens to get out of focus blur like that as you can see :)

edit: here's another one

between a busy work schedule, illness and horrible weather...no time to shoot lately. Didn't stop me from acquiring a new toy though....the Canon 85mm 1.8. A test shot of an Orchid that I bought for $6 in August and keeps blooming!

This little young orb spider (do they call them yearlings like horses?) was hunched in a little ball on a bit of the old cherry blossom tree stump in the front garden tonight - and you can see she probably landed there from nearby because you see where the web is with which she found her way there with (spiders are clever aren't they?)

Taken on the Venus lens at 2:1 mag, f/16, 1/200sec, ISO 100.

We had 6 red kites in our garden yesterday after my wife put some scraps out. We regularly have one, sometimes two come to see if there is anything of interest in our garden, but never 6.

Unfortunately, 1/500th is nowhere near fast enough to freeze the action

It''s not the shutterspeed but the focuspoint that bothering you. If you can focus in advance on some scraps then try to focus lock on that spot with the BFB.
Or otherwise try to pan with the subject and lock it when you have in focus. It's a great moment you have there.
You know they will come for it, so it's a great way to practice (pray and spray)
I see some great images with BIF on your Flickr page, but you working with small apeture numbers is there a reason for that??

A few taken today, all these were on the same piece of wood which I had carried into the kitchen to get out of the very cold biting wind. All taken on the Venus 2:1 lens, with flash, or natural light, or a combination of both!

You're spot on about the shutter speed being good enough and missing focus. Being at 90 degrees to the diving bird means the window of opportunity to capture the bird within the frame is tiny, my guess is around a second, 2 seconds at most. Increasing the angle will help give a longer window to get a photograph as it could easily double the time that the Kite is in frame and it will produce a much better photograph if the Kite is more face on rather than side on.

I wouldn't like to try and pan with a bird in flight that close, you would probably break your neck (not literally).

Pre-focusing with the lens in manual would be my second choice (after re-positioning) and go with as much depth of field as possible and just press the shutter button when the Kite approaches. They are really fast when they approach food because they want to get to it before other birds get a chance.
