Steady hands :!:
Hand held 600mm @ 1/750 and sharp. Esp when you consider the weight being held too:!:.

Yeap - 1/750s (@ 600mm) is just about right: just fast enough for handheld and still preserve the wing tips movements to convey the action - I hate 'frozen' pictures of birds when they are supposed to be moving... (The inertia of the lens actually helps to minimize the shakes)







... and it'll work for the shorter focal lenghts too:
