Actually those were made with Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 18-300 VR lens ... if it was 5D MK III, I bet the images would been a lot more sharper. Although I prefer 5D MK III for all "serious" photography, I always carry my Nikon D700+18-300 VR in my office bag everyday, and while I was coming back home from office on Wednesday I just took a detour to the beach and got lucky with those images ... I didn't even have to get down from the car for those shots.

So you're a swing shooter, shooting both ways, I'm good with that! haha, just kidding.   :D  Anyday you can get decent captures without leaving the car is a good day!  I need more of those!  Those birds move so quickly, as with most smaller avian, they are much harder to get good images of when on the fly, regardless of the camera.  I love the AF in my 5d3 as well... I can only compare it to my 7d which is decent but the 5d3 catches a lot more of this type of shot for sure!  Thanks again!

European Herring Gull in flight. For this photo, the pretty decent af system of the 5D iii came in quite handy! :)

Not a gull, but this Kestrel's a pretty agile bird.
