    This GBH wanted to stop on a dime, or fish. :)

    Nice shots, Patrick and Ben! I really like GBH flight shots. Patrick, yours looks really up close and personal -- how far away from you did it land?

    This guy circled probably 3 times about 15-25 feet in front of me.

    Very nice stuff, Patrick! Both the earlier duck-in-flight shots and now, this one. You're definitely getting the hang of it! I should probably know this, but what lens are you using for these? And, if I failed to mention it there, thanks for the vote of confidence in my own thread.

    Thank you Steve, I have always found your model shots, candids, and portraits an inspiration.

    The setup is a 300f4 with 1.4tc with D2x.

    Thanks for reply,

    Would those be air brakes???? Why is it when you have a long lens, they get closer and when the lens isn't long enough, they stay very far away???
