Re: Flight of the Sacred Ibis

Thanks Mark, I haven't as yet got my head around ProCap mode for as you say my reactions are quick, or more likely, the bird is slow! I've noticed that big birds like the Ibis lean forwards ever so slightly
before launching so you trip the shutter the instant it does. Even small to medium sized birds signal their intention by a sort of nervous look about, just as we do to avoid colliding with a car or a yacht!
