Frank, That is very well done. Very spontaneous and with a real sense of the bird's speed. I feel sorry for whatever it was attacking !

Terrific shot, look at the face on the bird - means business, frightening.

Did you use a wide enough depth of field so that you could catch it when it moved, or where you using a camera which could keep the focus lock when it took off?

The side lighting is interesting, it looks like the sun was setting, is that right?

I wish you'd have been able to use a faster shutter speed to freeze the wings better... but that might destroy the feeling of movement the picture has. Maybe it wouldn't be better.

Eric,

It was indeed in the twilight of the day, so I was keeping my fingers crossed for this one.

I used the action setting, did a prefocus and kept it locked untill I thought he would take off, and see it worked (this time).

Greetings,
Frank
