Very nice sequence of the Tern catching fish. I was trying to do that and was never able to get the whole sequence in a row because of slow frame rate on my camera. Did you use your 7D in capturing these great shots?

thanks! yep, the 5D2 can't match the 7D's frame rate, and i'd lose too much "reach" putting the 400 on a FF body.

You and the Terns have been quite friendly lately. Very nice series again.

birds, like most animals, are most active in early morning and late afternoon, just before dusk. these were shot at about 6:30 in the evening. that 100-400 lens does seem to be a great match with the 7D...
