I guess everyone has seen enough of my egrets lately, huh. But I need the practice on flight shots and they are about the only thing around that flies slow enough for me to get a decent try.

All taken with the 20D, 100-400L, 1.4x tc. All at ISO-400 and shutter speeds from 1/1600 to 1/8000.

Great Shots! 2 and 4 are wonderfully framed! A real good eye for the photograph!

And yes, that little guy is a young Little Blue. They're more interesting in adult colors, but I've never seen a juvenile.

Really fine shooting and exposure, Houston. Slow or not, that first flyer is perfect. I also really like the last one for it's action pose. Nice going.

Doesn't he have a wonderful eye for framing images? I've noticed Houstons shots are almost always perfectly framed.

There's a limit to what you can do with a sky, but as in the last image, which is a crop, he created an really nice scene.

It helps to have good material to start with...:lol:

But good material can take you just so far.

Thanks Norm. I was quite proud of the first one and the last one too. And I think I turned the stabilization off for these shots and relied on a fast shutter speed along with the AI Servo mode. I've tried mode 1 and 2 with the stabilization turned on and I think I did better on these with it off. Can you explain that.
