A barn owl composite that unexpectedly hunted over a wetland (while I was looking for stonechats) - very far off, but that helped with the autofocus, which is usually too slow and unreliable for birds in flight with my setup (500L II + 2x II). Considerable cropping required.

Second, lots of siskins on a garden feeder gave me the opportunity for some passerines in flight shots. Actually mostly wing-flapping displays, but it's nice to get shots of small birds doing something other than perching :) Poor light meant pretty high ISO required for this - flight-freezing shots needed 1/1600-1/3200 sec, so it was ISO 2500-4000 with the bare 500 and with the 1.4x III.

Some water foul in flight over Jefferson County, Kansas, yesterday afternoon: wood duck, blue-winged teal, mallards out for a stroll, and buffleheads skimming the water.  All taken with 70D & Tamron 150-600 at f8/600mm.

Shooting a model on the beach… So, I took a few shots for fun…
All you need is a few pieces of bread and in seconds you have dozens of Seagulls fighting over it. They get so close, you can almost hand feed them :D

This solitary skua was skimming a pristine snow bank while creating an angelic shadow as a bonus. (70D with 55-250 STM at 250mm.)

Two shots of black-browed albatross skimming the waters by our ship in Antarctica. In the "pair" shot, I particularly like the way their eyes are level but the wings are tilted.

Two juvenile Black Skimmers at sunset - Martha's Vineyard , taken last summer, I am hoping they return this year.
(there is a Peregrine falcon around the nest area, may scare them away )

Tundra Swan migration through Middle Creek, Pa.
600mm + 2xTC, F/13, 1/2500, ISO-640
1DIV, 5DIII, 7D and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.
