both are captured birds, shot from a workshop yesterday

both with 7D + 70-200 2.8

those Kestrels are ludicrously fast and being small makes it even harder, definitely the most difficult bird I have ever tried

Both are wonderful. I've yet to get a good shot of a Kestrel sitting, let alone in flight. Well done.

You did a super job on both of these and you should be very proud. I know I would be.

Kestrels are my favorite creatures on the planet. My favorite birds are owls. Great job on both.

Wow. Those are awsome pics. How does one exactly set themselves up for these types of shots? Hide out in the woods and wait for them?

it was a captured bird ;) it was flying between a perch and the handler so it was quite simple... well shooting it was simple, getting the focus to nail on it in such a short distance that fast was another story
