Birds in Flight - progress

Had a brief chat to the local cygnets today, I explained the issues regarding my camera and its inability to take pictures of birds in flight. They obliged by opening their wings and walking extremely slowly around the grass whilst I experimented with settings

Haha, I'm sure that all pilots start their training in a ground based simulator and these cygnets are no exception
