    This is my first decent bird in flight photo. Any comments on how to get nice photos of these critters in flight is greatly appreciated. I used a 70-300mm VR lense, a D80, Dynamic Focus Area, and AF-A.

  2. nice shot but kinda hot
    maybe dial down the ev, shoot in raw and then bring the light back
  3. Nice capture Bobby
  4. Nice capture!
    You might try underexposing white birds a little. You can try spot metering too. Actually might be a young heron?

    I usually start at -2/3 (depends on time of day)

    Your shot is nice and of a Cattle Egret :cool:
