After giving this a try, it is easy to understand how you became addicted. I'm having a ball thanks to you and the Cafe community.

BIF no different than tracking the running back coming out on and end run. Great job these two types of photography walk hand in hand

Hey Frank,

Do you know just how good that first image is? Two beautiful birds with just the right amount of environment showing. Outstanding!

Thanks Andy, from my vantagepoint, it looked like a good shot. I opted to handhold my gear today to find that pivoting was much more fluid. I was also pleased to have maintained whites without blowing them too badly.

Great job on these shots,

Metering looks pretty good, what did you end up doing?
