Very nice shot. It's always difficult with that kind of background.

From earlier today... (hmmm 1:42 AM - so I guess yesterday! :lol: ) Though some might think it is the dreaded "banding".... no - its reflections from the fairly calm water and the last sun of the day. ;)

Its quite a different experience with these “Bird of Prey” shows. You have to remain seated and there are obstacles (posts, people’s heads, iPhones, etc.) that often end up in the shot.:rolleyes:

As the birds are so close, the in-air time is very short as they fly from A to B and despite the Handler/Presenter warnings, folks jump up with their iPhones…. ruining many a shot.:-(

If the handler places the bird on a take off point, I usually zoom out and frame the bird on the departing side of the viewfinder, so it flies into the open space of the viewfinder. This way I may get 1 or 2 shots with the bird in frame and if I am lucky, also in focus and if I am even luckier, no iPhones or selfie sticks thrust into the frame!;-)a

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks for the tips. I just need to research where/when.

At 10 fps this represents roughly 0.6 of a second of the Osprey dive.

I do not like IF butt tail shots. I think this shot is an exception. You?

If you look carefully, you can see the unfortunate vole's feet peeking out. This kite is taking a meal back to it's mate.

Technically not a bird but I had to post this to show how impressed I was with the 100-400 II. Coming from a 100-400 I, there's no comparison between the two.

Just my second posting... BIFs just aren't my thing, it's tough to get anything shooting small birds in dense wooded areas. There is a pond by the woods though, and I thought I'd try my hand at some Rough-winged Swallows. Super huge crop, so it's nothing to write home about IQ-wise, but I shot this hand-held w/ my 5D4 + 500L II :-) Fast little devils.
