Skatol, nice capture.  Looks like something a painter would do with the flight in the background.

Thanks Jack.  Just lucky timing during the burst shot.

Luck?  I know all about luck.  If not for luck I'd have few shots to display!  But I'm sure you're persistent too, like me and it pays off more times than one would think.  Keep it up.

Hate to be posting more of the same but I guess I'm stuck until maybe another month.

Dark Eyed Junco, 5DIII, 300mm + 1.4TC, 1/400, F/5.6, ISO 1250

Very nice shot Skatol. I like the composition with the flying bird in the background.

6 FPS doesn't hurt either.  Please keep posting.  I get tired of my own repetitive images but enjoy seeing others.  Beautiful detail.  Gotta love that lens combo!

Canon 6d 70/300L combo.

Took these on trip to Stewrat Island in NZ.  These were just gorgeous to watch as they gave a display of flying skills you could never forget.  I almost cried out with tight chested emotion.
