Great series Norm - excellent composition and painfully sharp! I really like the last RP on the curved branch.

Those are all very nice, but I love the third one knowing how hard it is to get the timing just right for a shot like that.

Very nice. #3 is my fave. Those little birds are fast, hard to catch. Great job.

Thanks guys! It's always a huge blast of enjoyment when surrounded by a herd of these beautiful creatures. Glad you enjoyed a few from this post

I'll be sending my Mark III in for a "check up" on Monday. I took advantage of the "free" offer by Canon to give it a check up. What can I say, I'm Scottish :G. Hopefully it will be back in a few weeks. I'm going way, way back to my Rebel (version one) over the next week or two because my Mark II is still in the shop. Gads! Hope I don't go into withdrawl :?

Nos 1 & 3 are great captures - 1 has a sgreat ense of speed, hurtling through the air as it is; and if you are a Stargate fan, No 2 would remind you af a G'ould Death Glider (although the bird's aim is probably better). Those RBs are neat birds - we don't get them this far south.
