Hi zoomn, my camera probably focuses as fast as any but I still didn't use AF for these particular shots, I used zone focus in a MF setting. No AF was involved in any of the above shots as these birds just move too fast for any focusing action on my part. The camera needs to already be focused when the bird arrives.

Houston, Tom, and mullen, thanks loads, as usual, for your visit and commentary.

Cheerio to all.

Norm, these are most impressive. I can only say WOW. I assume you used teh 200 1.8 to get the fastest shutter speed possible. Please correct me if I am worng. I love your persistance in getting these shots and the result is some very remarkable work. Thanks for sharing with us.
