Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Please can anyone confirm what this nice pair might be? Best I can guess is Northern Pintails in eclipse, but I'd be really grateful for an answer from someone who knows what they're doing

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Another one.
I was using the electronic shutter and I suspect we may be seeing a little skewing of the background from that: these were coming in at quite a lick so the panning was very fast as they were so close.
First time I'd tried birds-in-flight with the 12-100. The camera hung on to them pretty well - 9 point central cluster, tight lock and I didn't have the focus limiter on.
