I know that there a lot of superb bird photographers who are members of the cafe who take birds in flight, but I thought that I would share a few of my efforts with you all.
Please note my technique is somewhat different. I am trying to capture birds that are not usually shown in this position and look especially at pictures 3 and 4. These birds are in fact diving and it is this part of their flight that came as a BIG BIG surprise. I have since learnt from hours and hours of observation that diving is a very very common part of their flight pattern.

This is a typical Magpie's diving position. Wings closed and going like the 'clappers.'

Again my thanks to Janet Zinn. Hope you enjoy them.
Best wishes. Bob F.

Really like all of your flight shots. Good job on small birds. They are tough to shoot.

Especially like the beautiful color in the first one. Like the angle and showing off of the beauty of the bird.

Good work.

Bob, I would not expect this kind of images from a dedicated wedding (oops :oops: ), sorry, macro photog.
These flight studies are very unusual.
I once tried to shoot smaller birds and utterly failed. Since that time all good bird photogs have my .... (missing a word here)... admiration.
