Donna at Cottage Days and Journeys puts our photography skills to the test each month with a photo challenge. I decided to share some birds in flight for my selections as this is the hardest thing for me to do and something I want to get better at.
One of my best efforts as I knew what time the hummer came to the feeder and had the camera on the tripod. ISO 640 f7.1 and 300mm
Osprey babies stretching their wings and taking flight. The tripod was in use again but being so far away so as not to stress the birds, not all that crisp. ISO 100 f/8 and lens at 300m
A coopers hawk that I pulled over to the side of the road to capture. Wouldn't you know it would take flight on me and it's not so clear because I was holding the camera and shaking from excitement. (grannies do this you know) ISO 100 f/8 and lens extended to 300mm
All of the above were taken with my Canon 40D.
