    Not an easy target Troy, so just getting one is a step in the right direction. Keep it up and you'll get there. :smile:

    Very, very good pictures.
  8. You are really close to a great shot here.

    MY recommendation would be:

    1. Use flash to stop the motion of the Hummer, and in this case against the light expose the bird correctly.
    2. LOWER the shutter speed to 1/250 and set aperture to F8 or so, it is the flash that freezes the motion of the bird. YOu need more DOF.

    Andreas, Thanks for the input. I must get over the fact that just because I'm outside in good light that a flash still has a place.
