Member posts are NEVER a waste of time, in my opinion. Very interesting series - hope the doves got away. But then, I also hope the hawk didn't go hungry....what a dilemma!!

I agree! No posts/photos are a waste of time; otherwise most of mine would be gone!

That's nice "shooting", for a scene changing so rapidly!

Jim - did you use the burst mode? If not, that's an effective way to capture fast moving objects.

yes ,thats right-saly, i have used burst mode as the action was very quick and it was very difficult to track & focus the bird with full zoom (35.2 X 1.4 canon TL-55 attachment) through LCD . Actually, the flying doves and hawk images are not taken with fullest of zoom as it was not possible for me to trek their path through LCD screen..l i have captured few more images when they are in flight during that incounter ..just to share with you..please..

Jim - I like 2.3, seeing the different angles of the wings. And I don't know what that is in your 2.1 either, maybe a part of another bird behind it??

I also have trouble shooting birds in flight, it's really hard to keep up with them, I keep loosing them in my viewfinder.....
