Lots of different wing positions to choose from, these were about 1 sec. apart, out of a two second sequence. She was quite distant, about 50% crops.

Excellent BIF shots of the Avocet.

Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

It was very close, hard for me to keep up with the bird's speed, taxing for 6D AF as well. I love 135, it is my favourite one.

A-number-1 capture, Shalu. Really nice flight pose.

Lame-Duck wrote in post #18781319 (external link)
Stellar flight shot, Shalu. That pose really shows off their beautiful coloring.

Thank you so much for your compliments, Mike!

Shalu that's answered a question I'd pondered.
I gather they do snatch and break off branches.
That'd let me off the hook then 'what did it catch'  :p

Seriously though, these are very nice images of magnificent birds.

Thank you very much for the comments, Richard!
