shot these today, using manual mode, 1/500 @ f5.6, with TCON-14B. had to use manual focus cuz the FZ's AF isn't near fast enough for these little fellas... i set the focus for a spot about 80 yards away, then tracked these until i guessed they were about the same distance. not as clear and sharp as i'd like, but considering how fast these guys fly, i'm not too unhappy with the results...

squirl--that is an awesome job for manual focus and guestimating focus distance.

thanks, guys... i'm considering stepping up to a DSLR, which would make shots like this easier, but there's a lot of questions i need answered first... not least of which is lenses! till then, my trusty ol' FZ20 will have to suffice.
