Lance, how did you nail the focus? Auto (which mode) or manual? Beautiful images.

Thank you for your nice comments, Davoe. Auto Focus, birds in flight with 51pt and birds on ground a mixture of 51pt and single point. I always put the AF point on the eye or on the same plane as the eye.

Impressed, jealous and all that stuff. :biggrin:
Beautiful images.

Great to see all these birds that I also photograph, in just a tad more clarity than I get... (intentional underestimation!).
