Is it in an inner city park, or how did you manage to get that close? Nice result anyway, whatever you did to make it cooperate. 200 mm DA*?

Kjell, I took these bunch from a conservation area in a suburb by Toronto, called Unionville. Around 300K people. When they are hunting, they do not care about people closing in unlike the time when they are in their rookery. You know me. I like to push the len's limit and see how far it can go. It just confirms the old reputation of FA*200mm.

Great shots Daniel, you've inspired me to go look for some of our local grey's and blue's. They are amazing creatures in flight.

Rodney, Harriet , Jim

Thanks for commenting. Actually if only I had Tamron 70-200mm or Tom's Pentax 80-200mm, I would have the whole bird and the splashing scene all in a frame. Instead I did cut off part of the subject to accommodate the latter.
I had nowhere to back into (for zooming out) with my fixed 200mm. This is the whole subject minus the interesting part though



In this case, seems that a zoom wins


Daniel

p.s. edited in later


I did not post this one as it seemed that it was blurry. It is to an extent. But actually the bird was swinging so much so that its head was kind of twisted up.
