Very nice. I wouldn't mind having the goose photo in my family room!

Hi Tom,

Someday, I hope to be able to capture BIF shots as well as you do. Usually, I think that I'm trying with too much lens. I just started going over some of my first DS shots, when I was using an m42 SMC Takumar 200, and I was surprised that some of the early BIF experiments were okay, even with MF.

I know that very fast AF would make it easier, but I also know that my technique needs to improve dramatically, so that will be one of my projects over the winter. Luckily, a lot of ducks and geese winter around here, so between them and the pigeons, I should have a good supply of subjects.

Scott,

I rarely use AF on low flying birds since there are too many thing like branches that can catch the focus and then you loose the shot. I would think a MF lens would do just fine and you can save some cash and still get some very nice photos.
