Birds in Flight


Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I went to a location where I had previously seen a large bird of prey circling overhead. After an hour I was ready
to quit when out of the blue there it was. The shots aren't very good so will try to do better next time. I ID it as a Whistling Kite.
I've realised that inertia is the key to bird photography - it's like trout fishing, a great excuse to do nothing all day.




Heavy crop, the bird was beyond reasonable reach of the lens for a really good shot
. A mode, F6.3. 1/8000, 210mm, ISO1000

Phill, it's the camera who's a filthy lech', it gets distracted by blonds.

Mark
