I like the motion in the wings. It makes the photo much more dynamic.

some of my recent attempts


This is a very rare bird a paradise fly catcher I would have bin lucky to have spotted one let alone photograph it


this one of my first gull shot


an ordinary egret in flight


this was shot with the middle of summer mid day sun as back lighting, had to do little pp but all credit to the 70-400g   


70-400g mfd is great too


this is slightly more than 100% crop extreme top left corner at 400

Thank you P Man. Overall I am happy with the photo. I was very excited to have several bald eagles of different maturity so close to me. I took over 50 photos of seven different eagles in a few minutes time. The shots did not turn out exactly like I had planned. Only five or six shots came out right and worked for me. I was hoping for a little more success, but thats the way it goes. Each failure I experience makes me a better photographer. (in my own mind anyway)
Lots of Canon gear, Min.400/4.5 HS APO G,

This week has been my first real chance to go birding with the A700. I'm much happier with the results vice the A300.

Those are pretty close Jerry. Are they not so shy or were you in a hide.
In our garden I would never get so close I think.
You can see the April Foolishness 2023 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum
