Nicely done.

When I shoot those guys flying I normally go for the flock effect. I've always felt there is something magical about how the group of them fly around. The sound they make.... the flash of white underneath when they bank.

But capturing them is not easy, not by a long shot.

I like that first one a lot.

Thanks, guys!

Eric, there's something to be said for going for the flock effect. You're almost always guaranteed that at least some of them will be in focus and the ones that aren't contribute to the feeling of motion that exists within the flock when they are in flight.

Join in to the threads, Eric, I've been missing your expert input!
