Very nice both of them. I don't have much success with birds in flight and noticed that you went with fairly small apertures (f/9.5 and 13). Do you find that the increased DOF makes a difference in your percentage of keepers? I have not tried that angle but maybe I should.

Tim,

Yes the reason I get so many good ones is the increased DOF, when I step it down it just gets blurry and looks like i turned the stabilization off and I had a seizure. LOL

Those are nice, but the K10D doesn't do so well at ISO 800 and I would drop it down to at least 400 to loose some of the grain in the first shot.
