actually got some sunshine this afternoon, so i went to the park near my house. while i was there, this Great Blue caught me a bit off guard as he burst from cover and flew right in front of me. i didn't even have time to back off the zoom... just pulled up the camera, let the AF do its thing and snapped the shot. once i looked at it, though, i decided i like the "clipped" effect... it really makes you feel right on top of the action. this shot was not cropped, only resized...

Great capture!
That is why I love birding, you have 2 seconds to get the shot or go home and tell the store about the one that got away. :?




Great job
Jeff

yeah, it can definitely be a challenge.... but when you nail the shot, and get a wall-hanger of a difficult subject, it's a real kick in the pants! :G

Yeah, you got that right Squirl. Its a great feeling when you do get that wall-hanger. You might not have got all of this GBH but what you did get was super, really sharp.
