I just started practicing on my manual 300mm lens on sea gulls - at least there is an abundance of subjects.






I have a lot less keeper . But it is fun frantically rotating the focus ring while panning. Quite a lot to pick up

Immensely difficult to take BIF shots using the manual lens.Less difficult only for BIF shots of birds taking off. The shot you posed here is one of the type I think. Terrific work.

Nice job using the manual focus on the BIF! Not something I try very often :-)

Abbreviations drive me nuts. They should be spelled out first then used. Now I know Bif was the bad guy in the Back to the Future movies. But Im sure you dont mean him. So what does BIF mean. The I is in and the F is focus. Still working on the B.

Thanks Royce. I do a lot of BIF shooting and I didnt even know it. I did some BIF shooting yesterday. In fact I did double BIF shooting. Birds and Bugs in Flight. I came upon a squad of Dragonflies.javascript:%20document.editor_form.mes sage.value%20=%20document.editor_form.text_editor. value;%20document.editor_form.post_reply.value=1;% 20document.editor_form.submit();
