Default Bird In Flight Attempt

Tried to take some shots of BIF when I was on the Outer Banks. If anyone has any tips for taking these types of shots I would love to know what they are.

jj - I'd be thrilled to get a shot like this! I think it's great!! I have read that you should leave more space in the front of the flying bird, rather than behind it, to show motion.

Perfect! But I agree with saly, think i you'd cropped it a bit and have more space in front of the bird i would be even more perfect. But of course, that's just what I think, and I'm not even a amateur yet, hehe.

Thanks Saly, right about the space in front. I have been told that the bird should fly into your frame not out. My problem is that I'm lucky to get a bird in my frame at all.

Thanks Square One. I think getting BIF shots with one off the FZ's is about 20% skill and about 80% luck.

Good shot !
But I think that you can crop it better. The space from left and above the bird is not needed. If the image has enough resource, you can crop it like this ...
