now how did that happen , ya got em, sweet..........
Randy, can I book you for teaching?
Not surprised. You have the skill!
Wow! And the eye is in focus!! How did you get that?
Randy, you are showing off..... Great shot, yes the D5 (and the D850 and D500) will hold on the face if that is what you focused on for a bit, there is an adjustment for the time it stays on the subject when it is blocked.

"great shooting! your work is Beagle approved! Chrissie must be so proud of you." - Georgie Beagle
Whoa! D5 AF is awesome!
Eye see.....great demonstration of the camera's capabilities in good hands.
Oh wow, oh wow, oh WOW!!!!! LOVE this! That eye..... Whew!!!
I'm up to 3 of these so far, never saw one before this trip. This one's my fav of the hidden eye shots (so far)....
I know this looks shopped but I wouldn't know how even if I wanted to....
You get what you pay for
Wow. That's pretty cool. How did you have AF set up?
WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!! I saw a Caracara while in Florida years ago but he was just sitting on a tree limb, not doing much of anything.
That second one is an amazing shot!
Really good capture.
Nice captures Randy. 12 FPS and the D5's AF system at work. I have a3 set to "Quick" and "Erratic" and the AF point will hold the eye through wing beats very reliably.
Seeing these photos, I guess I am going to have to start looking at Texas locations for a bird shoot.
I just sold my D850, my 2nd one
After Texas the D850 is a liability for me
If I had never experienced a D5 I would have liked the D850
Great shots, all of them. For the D5 to stay crisp on the eye reaffirms why I love the Nikon AF System. I like your statement about D850 being adequate as compared to experience w/D5. So I guess I won't try D5 so as not to be confused;-/ I'm working towards D850 soon.
...definitely don't try a D5 and I'd think twice about a grip for the D850. At the very least try it for a month w/o a grip. The screw on grip makes the D850 a little bigger than my D5 and the grip doesn't feel good (to me), I think because the D850 is so stout already it doesn't need a grip to feel good...btw the ungripped D850 feels great, feels way stronger than my D800 did, could be just me though
I wish exif told you because I was switching between, S, D25, and group area, if I had to guess I'd say D25. I had been using group area for 2 months but my guide in Texas convinced me to move away from group area. It doesn't seem to matter with the D5. I'm about 1/4 way into PPing my 1700 Texas pics total. The D850 had a lot of missed focus, the D5 almost none. The D850 was sold yesterday
you sure do. Nikon can say what they want about the D500, D850 and D5 sharing the same AF system. I shoot all 3 bodies. The 1st 2 are the same. The D5 is unlike any camera ever
