That's an amazing capture, Shalu. It sorta looks like he's just flying along, with his head turned around to see what things look like upside down. :p:lol:

Thank you very much, Mike! :lol:

Thank you Phil. I don't use the 500 that much anymore because it keep getting heavier every year. But I almost always run a 1.4 TC with it whenever I do. That plus the 1.6 crop factor of my 7Dii gives me the equivalency of 1120mm.

My buddy and I were trying to get some shot of ducks and shore birds, when I noticed this hummer not too far off. Since I do know how to speak a little hummingbird, I asked her to hold still for just a second, and she did. So, I got off a couple of shots that I was happy with. Anyways, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.:-P :p:lol:

That's a lot of reach & very handy. On the D500 (1.5x crop), with the 500PF & 1.4x TC, it's a little shorter at 1050mm, but it's also a LOT easier to maneuver. It's basically like holding a 70-200 F2.8, as far as size & weight. The 600 w/TC is another story. While it will yield an effective FL of 1260mm, it's more of a tripod, bean bag, or short duration rig for me. Lol!

I need to find some local bird speak classes! :lol:

I wish you hadn't mentioned how light your D500 pllus your 500PF & 1.4X TC is. Your effective FL and mine are so close it isn't even worth mentioning. The size and weight of your rig really makes me envious. These days I mostly use my 7Dii plus a 1.4 TC on my 400 f/4 DO lens. I get an effective FL of 896mm, which is OK. That's about as heavy as I want to carry and hand hold.

Very nice capture of the barn swallow, Mike! And with 80D! The low keeper rate of BIF shots from 80D was what prompted me to switch system :lol:

Nice shot. Considering the difficulty in shooting this in flight

Thank you Archi. They're too speedy for me. I spent most of the late afternoon chasing them with my camera. My success was extremely limited.

Thank you very much. I've always enjoyed trying to shoot small fast birds in flight. My success ratio is very low, but I'm dumb enough to keep trying.

Hah - what NASA automated radar-guided tracking system were you using for this shot Mike ;-)a, what an amazing capture. Love the clarity.:-)

Cheers
