Hi all,

I tried to post this with size of 247,000 bytes and got error message - too big to post.

So shrunk it down to 197,000 bytes and I hope this works.

This hen was comingtoward me and I was shooting in burst mode. This one came out better than the rest.

Cheers, Dan

Great stop action! What were your settings?

BTW- 244k is the limit on file size in this forum (you just missed it on the first try) and a good upload format that shows well on most monitors is ~ 800x600 pix.

Thanks for posting Dan, I love flight shots!

Thanks, Donna & Kent.

I use a Nikon D50 with a Sigma 28-300mm zoom - that's my walking aroundkit.

There was a fella standing off to my right who feeds the ducks every day at noon and I was in a good position to track the incoming birds coming in off the river.

I'm still anewbie when it comes to all the bells & whistles of my camera - my previous experience was with a point & shoot digital camera. Consequently, I'm working onlearning to usea minimum of the features - but on learning how to use them as well as possible. For examlple, I shoot in shutter priority mode exclusively. I have PhotoShop CS which also helps at times to correct my mistakes.

Regarding the settings, if I remember correctly, shutter speed was 1/1,000 sec, WB was Auto, ISO was 200,metering was Matrix, and focus was AF-C - continuous auto focus. Aperture settingwas automatic and I don't have access to the F stop data from this location. All pics were taken handheld. I'm happy you enjoyed them.

Cheers, Dan
