The 80D is not really the best camera for BIF, but It'll do OK, Shalu. It's a really light rig when I use my Canon 300 4.5-5.6 L. I'm a bit faster with it than with the heavier lenses. I got several dove in flight the same day I was shooting swallows.

Whoa...what a fantastic shot, Bill. It's super sharp and so nicely captured.


Nice pp technique on this shot. I like it.

Thank you very much, Shalu.

Full frame with the goose certainly does render excellent sharpness/detail, Shalu. Really nice work!! The big trick is capturing it full frame at 1200mm. And yeah, I know...dot sight!:-D

Thank you very much, Sibil. My shutter speed of 1/5000 seemed to do the trick.

I never have enough light for that kind of shutter speed :cry:
