Hey Roy,
Not up to your usual sharpness of pict. Is it still maddingly hot down there? Or it was the jpg compression while uploading? Or maybe I am reading it in my office monitor?
It should not be harder than your heron or macro shots.

So they tend to move about a bit, eh? Can't you just politely ask them to keep still for a little while (ask Tom, I'm sure he knows the right words)

Can you see any traces in your pictures of that "tiny scratch"? I can't in this picture at least.

it's by no means ''tiny''.. i think it was dropped. some times it'll shot fantastic and then turn around shoot crap.. i don't understand it..

Wahaaay, well done! I wish we had these birds over here, I know they would be difficult to shoot but I'd love to at least be able to try.

you bet kjell,
that was shot at 1/500 flash sync and the wings are still a blur.


i think tom may be a warlock or something. he's got to be putting a hex on them.
