Re: UFO (Birds) Red Centre

Hi there Mark!

I am afraid I don't know either, but they're great images ! I'm amazed at the exif data though - at iso 250 and f7.1 I think I would get more like 1/25th with the weather we had today. You definately get a better quality of light in the red centre.

Cheers,

Ralph.

These look like Black Kite, Milvus migrans, to me. One of the world's most widespread raptor species.

I googled it and yes, Tordan, a perfect match for what came up. Thanks for the ID.

Too little Light is rarely a problem in Oz, often too much of it especially at weddings is often the case. But you're right Ralph, the E-3 thrives on lots of it and makes nasty noises when there isn't!

Thanks Huw, the skies over the Red Centre are full of them, they circle over the highways riding the thermals coming off the hot pavement, and large flocks of them are often seen circling thousands of feet above. I often wondered why.

The M5 should be a great advantage if it can track focus (which the E-3 can't)
