Hello all, I'm new here.

I would like to share the BIF shot with you guys.  This is slow panning shot of Spoonbill, 1/100 sec.

BTW, does it have to be Canon to join here?  I use both Canon and Nikon.  My main birding camera is the 1DX.

The Red Kite was shot with my 70-200/4L IS USM, at 1/320s, f/7.1 @ ISO 160. It was straight above me, and so close I didn't have the lens fully zoomed to 200mm.

The Goose with a brain-fart was shot with my 400/5.6L, at 1/800s, f/5.6 @ ISO 250. He/she was flying with its mate, but somehow decided to go in for a landing in the tree. A split second after this shot, it decided maybe it wasn't that smart to attempt that place to land and managed to manoeuvre away from it. Geese and trees is not a good mix...

A swallow shot in Perth, 1/ 2000, f5.6 with 7D and 100-400 at 320 with a heavy crop.

They were collecting mud at a puddle but were so fast I barely had time to press the shutter before they disappeared back to the nest. And they gave zero warning they were about to leave. Pretty happy with this one though.
