Fantastic capture Sha.
Do you notice, on the Sony A9, any rolling shutter (slanted trees in the background),
when shooting fast action with the 20 frames per second electronic shutter?
Happy trails.

Thank you very much, Paul! I haven't noticed any rolling shutter on A9, probably not enough to be noticeable most of the time. On the other hand, my friend's A7RIII has severe rolling shutter effect when he uses electronic shutter for BIF.

Causing a little wing tilt. Great shot!

Beautiful shot, Shalu. Very nicely captured.

Thank you very much, Bill and Mike!

Very nice, Shalu. I hate to tell you this, but I'm pretty certain this one is an immature drake mallard. All young mallards have the same coloration (look like females) and their normal drake coloration will fill by late fall or early winter. If you look at the bills, you can tell the males from the females at an early age. This bird has the bill color of a drake and is barely beginning to show just a slight hint of green on the face and head.

Check out this shot of a mother mallard (front right bird) and her 8 Young'uns. If you look at the bills there are 5 drakes, and 3 hens (I'm pretty sure).

Splendid shot of a very evasive target, Levina. I know from a lot of first hand experience.:lol:

This is truly an awesome 2 shot action series of this double-crested cormorant catching a fishy meal, Paul. I've always noticed that you shoot with a Canon 7D. I used one for many years before going to a 7DII. I'll say one thing; You surely get marvelous images with that older camera. They are very impressive. But I also know...it's the photographer, and not the camera, that captures great images:!:
