Nice shot! I usually miss with these and end up with just part of the bird in view, methinks I need more practice! lol!

landing,
w/the A300mm @ f4
you're right about missed shots. i only took about 40-50 that day and kept 3. this was the best and i got it in the middle of the shoot. i knew i'd go home happy because this was the shot i went to get..

thanks for looking,
roy

Nice action shot Roy! Were you using the multiple image capture (burst) mode?

i've always got it on, but this was a single image.. i remember because i chimped the shot immediately and smiled..

tom would be a better person to ask about technique and getting bird shots. he's the king in this from what i've seen..

I almost always use single image mode, because it makes me take more time with the composition I want instead of just blasting away and hoping for the best while sorting through a bunch of shots. Just don't forget to pan with the moving object you are trying to capture and it will be in the frame most of the time.

Then you have to sort through them to find the wings in the position you want them in for your final image.

Still a nice capture Roy!

I haven't been able to get close enough for the detail in your shot Roy but, Here are some of my "final approach" shots:

Seagull



Pidgeon 1 (sorry this was blown up a bit):




I just changed one image and removed another, any improvements?
