Every time I go out to shoot I am hoping to capture smething really outstanding with hopes I can share it on here and get some feedback and occasional ooh and ah...
then I download and mercilessly delete a bunch and come up with a scant few that please me. Looking at some of the other contributors work it is obvious i have much to learn yet. But the fun is in the trying. My goal with the set up on this blue bird was to attempt to catch her in flight just as she entered or exited the nesting box.

Thanks, Gale, Bryan, and Gordon. I had ISO cranked up to 640 to allow fast shutter speed, and camera set to shutter priority. They seem to lack in color, contrast tho. i am really frustated that I am unable to use raw format. I have got to find a solution to that issue.

This is the view I had most of the time while waiting for the attempted flight shot. these little jokers are quick? After a short while I felt that I was disturbing her ability to set her eggs so I left her alone.

Frank,
I saw reference to that in another thread, and I suspect that may be why it is not available right now as a downlad or purchase. I will email todd and harris about it and check the thread you linked. Thanks
