The Dive Bomber.

The white-tailed kite was charging at a hawk in a tree below (I can't see the hawk, but I know it's there based on the kite's behavior).

Great capture, Shalu!! Shots like that, when they are diving at 1,000 mph are so tough to nail. You sure did a nice job on this one.

Enjoy.

I lost count at 20.  :p:lol:
I really like the shot of the neck collard snow goose, Ted. The lighting on the goose looks great against the dark background.

Fantastic capture, Bill!

I havn't looked or posted in here for a while sorry, the weather has been rubbish constant rain and flooding, so yesterday was the first BIF shot in ages - just a simple gull.

Amazing shots fellas. Dang, I might just go ahead and switch to Sony, Mainly due to weight but I can only afford A7III. Any tips on that body? Both these are topnotch IQ. FE200-600mm? I called it off and will wait for the Canon R5 for now and will start to compare but I love what I am seeing from both you.

I was impressed by the camera's ability to track the bird despite the intervening trees.
