Mark this is an excellent shot of the red kite in flight. The sharpness and detail are great. I've noticed you've been using you Canon 80D very successfully for shooting birds in flight. Do you prefer it over you 7DII? Personally, I really like the 80D, but I feel that my 7DII is just a little bit more capable for nailing the BIF shots. What are you thoughts on this?

Some very nice captures of one heck of a difficult target, Sid.

Thanks Mike, Pretty much the same as you buddy, The focus system on the 7d2 is superior for tracking especially tracking across all 65 points but the 80d does perform very well, I have been testing bif captures on the 80d but would normally use the 7d2. If i am out solely focused on wildlife then i take the 7d2, If it is landscape or seascape and milky way i take my 6d anything else and its the 80d.:)

Thank you, Mike. Going through the years starting in 2014 and keeping what I deem to be the best and finding some good ones to post. A good thing to do with 100+ temps outside.
