But it seems that I have a lot more of birds flying away showing me the tails.

Aahhh, the curse of the butt shot.

Here's a peacock that snubbed me a while back.

Aiii, you're morphing into a regular birder Phil - very nice!!!
If you end up finding that you don't really use your Ai-S 58mm f/1.2 anymore, just send it my way (I'll pay for postage)...:biggrin:

Thank you very much Gale.

Great shots Phil. Last one is funny.
p.s. I remember you posting some Kites in flight. Want to see some of those.
Thanks Sam. Yes, I have some Kite shots but none are sharp, as they never come near when I have a camera. :confused: I am working on it and will post once I get a good one.

Thank you very much Louie. I appreciate that.

Great shots Phil. Second one is my favorite.
Thanks a lot Yvette. I am also happy with that one and it's taken with the S5 Pro in the first week I had the camera.

Thanks Frits, for the comment and the reminder. The Noct is happily sitting in my bag, being used once in a while and not gathering dust. :biggrin:
