Caught this as the bird was swooping in to pick up a gift we threw out. I couldn't believe how fast they are. I shot with my 70-200mm, and severely cropped in PP. I think it is ok given the circumstances. Your comments please.

Great timing, looks a little dark on my laptop. You would probably get more comments in the bird section.

A bunch of equipment with Canon on it and some stuff with Sigma on it. The desire to capture a moment in time and share it with you! :)

Its a great shot but i would have dialed down to wide open f4 to get a faster shutter speed.I guess to get a shot like that you have to live with the settings that you had it on hehe.Sean .L;)

Hi Michael;

Good job on a spur-of-the-moment capture.... but... what on earth is that blue trailing behind the bird?

Cheers;

Lee

I believe that is the tail feather? The other shots in the sequence have it in different positions. Air brakes??

you are right there Sean. I was totally not ready. In fact my friend had a 300mm packed safely in his bag. At least I was able to shoot!

Thanks Pete and Woody. I normally don't shoot wildlife. All my time here I never noticed the separate bird section! I guess if a mod is listening in, please move this post to BIRDS.
