Mike, Pelican in flight, who would have thought this is possible with a CAT. Apparently the AF on the Mino 500 makes it possible.

Great Pelican shots, so much detail!

Nice squirrel, Matt. They take on different looks by region. Only 45 minutes from me there is one called a raccoon squirrel that we don't have here. Oddly, the ones we have in CHarleston resemble the ones in New Jersey.

Thanks, Paul. The AF does help. However, I have found it difficult to track the bird when flying by so quickly. The bird has to be in the center of the frame for the AF focus and the focus is still hit or miss. I do better with the AF Vectis 400. I try to set the focus range in advance when expecting a fly-by, which requires less adjustment for the AF. I've captured BIF using MF as well with the same technique, but success is even more limited. It's fun trying MF like in the old days when BIF was an accomplishment.
Regards,

woodrim
