Nice capture. Tough bird to get for sure.

Great job - they are very difficult to photograph because of their speed and incredible maneuvers in the air.

Wow, I am impressed. I have never tried to capture one of these in flight. That would be quite a challenge, nice work. Is this with AI Servo? Center focus point or all? My BIF skills are mediocre, at best.

Camera was in AI Servo, using the 9 AF center points. I took like 260 photos, and maybe ten were worthy of sharing.

Thanks for posting these, I tried one evening to get a decent shot out of a flock darting across the open water....no luck whatsoever. I'll keep your settings in mind next time!
