Wow! Three out of those 5 shots are great. Excellent detail. You definitely seem to have mastered the technique. I have 0 flying shots, not for lack of trying. Well done!

Yes 10D in AI servo mode, IS off. I always shoot in Av mode, most of these shots at f8 and 1/750sec. ISO200.

Awesome shots, I love the avocet specially, it's amazing how close you were from this guy. The ones I have in my area never let me get close. Good work.

Special!

PS - the IS tends to be a bit redundant when you are at extreme shutter speeds. That's one of the reasons why I'm personally not extremely impressed with the IS craze. Who cares at 1/800th or more :-)

I agree normcar, but when you have to shoot at 1/125sec. you need IS. I took some shots at 1/90 (hand held) and they came out pretty good. Try that without IS. I know you can use tripod. You know what I mean, you have the FZ10.

But I agree, for flight shots, I think keeping IS off is helping me.
