These are my first in flight shots with the 20D and aren't as sharp as I would like them to be but they are definately better than any of my in flight shots so far. So I think me and the 20D are going to get along just fine. I took the flight shots with the lens set on #2 and the camera on AI Servo. Then I forgot to change it when I took the Great Egret in the tree. All of these are cropped at least 200% or more. Don't know how to tell exactly how much. The trees in the background slowed my shutter down too much but...........It's been cloudy and raining ever since I got the 20D as a tropical storm was in the area but it has passed over now and the sun is finally coming out.

All are taken with 20D, 100-400L and 1.4x TC.

1. Little Egret I think as the beak is too short for a Snowy and the feet aren't bright yellow.

Cropped a lot, resized, FM and NR. ISO 400, 1/800th, F5.6, -1 Step.

3. Great Egret in a landscape. Too far away for anything else.

Nice shots of a bird in flight.

I do believe that this is an immature Little Blue Heron. If it was a Little Egret the bill would be longer, the feet would be yellow, even if not as bright.

The only other possiility is the Yellow Warbler....

Thanks Dave and I do believe you are right. I was going by the pictures in my book instead of reading.

I forgot to tell you how much I like the picture of the Great Egret. To see these guys in tree's is always an amazing sight, even though THEY don't think so.

I once saw a Great Blue, screw up big time, and it left him a criple, with a hole in his neck, from which his tongue protruded. I didn't realise the extent of his injuries, until I saw the same bird a week later. I wont post those images (I don't have images of the actual crash) because they are just plain ghastly.

He survived for months, and left on migration.
