Thanks Ronnie, good advice.

Thanks Ted, like you I hardly ever see them still, but there were a few this weekend.

Nice shots...first and last pics are my favorite. I have the same problem trying to capture birds in flight, they are usually out of focus, eventhough I use spot focus. I've been wanting to try manual focus by prefocusing in the general area and see if that works. Any suggestions, anyone.

Thanks Hiroshi. Yes I find it hard to get focus as well. As you say perhaps manual is the best bet.

Thanks Jerry, We get these sitting on lines quite often in this part of the world.

Thanks Bett Ellen. Composition was lucky, If I had managed to nail the focus, it would have been real nice. Almost like a single note on a musical score.
