Bird In Flight Practice

The weekend was dreary and cold on Saturday and I was able to practice on eagles at long distance and some eagles flying.  The pictures were sharp, but due to the ISO I tried using (3200 to 4000) the pictures were not usable.  Today provided a better opportunity to test in flight focus tracking.  Four osprey provided the opportunity to take multiple shots at various ISO and shutter speeds.  







ISO 1000, f7.1 1/3200, +1 EC




ISO 1000, f 7.1, 1/2000, +1 EC




ISO 1000, f7.1, 1/1250 +1 EC

Nice work Jim!

That first image is tack sharp, incredible detail! It appears that your focus tracking is certainly up to the task also. I think I would be in hog heaven with a rig like that!
