The quality on these didn't quite turn out, but I thought I would post them anyway as it was pretty cool to see.

Thanks Don. I'm using a Sigma 80-400 4.5-5.6 EX APO OS lens. It's been a real learning curve trying to get a fast moving bird...panning, the right settings, etc...I still haven't gotten a nice sharp one but I'll keep practicing...makes me appreciate the shots that you guys post in here a whole lot more.

That's a nice lens. I know of others who use it. These look pretty sharp to me, as it looks like you weren't all that close. Very good job I think....cheers...Don

Sometimes being able torecord the event can be more important than absolute photographic perfection. These do the job nicely - there is nothing to apologize for.
