Great Egrets flying over a pond

  1. Slow flyers help one work on BIF skills. Mine aren't too great.

    Look fine to me, I need all the practice I can get. Still haven't got the hang of panning with a gimbal head.
     
  3. Nice set, Allan. I really like the wing/bird angle in no.1. No.3 has some weird artifacts in front of the bird.

    Yes those guys should provide some good BIF practice. Gulls are good for that too. I'm having to practice a bit with the 500 PF. So short and light it is taking some getting used to handling it.
    I had a hard time with the gimbal until I started putting my left hand on top of the lens hood/hood. I found that helps smooth out the panning motion and helps overall to stabilize things.
