Default sandpiper in flight

got this shot of a least sandpiper coming in for a landing... not quite as tack sharp as i'd have liked, but i'm still figuring out the best AF modes to use for "fast-movers" like this, and getting the hang of tracking with this new lens... 7DII, 600mm, 1/2500 @ f/8

Great BIF shot. I too am still trying to figure out the different AF Tracking modes. If you figure it out . . . let me know.

thanks, Mugmar... i'm getting the hang of it, but it's a learning curve... my old 7D didn't have as many options to choose from!
