Interesting capture. Did you catch this with burst mode? The whole thing must have lasted a second. Second is my favorite.

Thanks for the comments! The last two were shot in burst mode. I know the last pic was not very good but it went along with the sequence. Hoping for a brighter day to get a shutter speed at ISO 200 to stop the action. I may try 400 but have quite a bit of noise at that setting. Any tips on how to do this with the FZ20?

i use a flash if you can get close enough say with in 5 meters ..a powerful flash will stop those wingys from flapin like that...the flash acts as a strobe and freezes the motion ...

RDV,

Great pics esp #2-is the treat peanutbutter and seads on a pinecone? My kids have made so many of those-school, boyscouts, etc. but I have never seen a bird eat from it:?.

Jazz master-thats a great pic too-was it done with your fz or? And was the bird in the wild or at an avairy-just curious.

Happy:|,
