Had a picnic with the family and some friends at a local park, never shot birds before so any feedback is appreciated!

Shot with Samsung NX100 (mirrorless) + Canon FD 400/4.5 combo. I should buy an LCD loupe, focusing in sunlight is not ideal, to put it mildly...

Not bad. Once you get started its hard to stop. I think its the challenge of composing then the bird moves before firing the shutter.

Say hello to your newest addiction, and goodbye to having money in you wallet. These are great, looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks Lil, now I have to admit I didn't even know what kind of bird it was... :oops:

Thanks Kenny, in that second shot I clicked off a few frames and the last one was empty!
