Second one caught the flight very well, but the background takes away the scene.  I know, one can't control what's behind the subject.  Still the egret poses splendidly.

It's been a long time since I've posted any pics... real life just kind of caught up, and no time for photography :(

I was very sad the other day, when I missed the chance to photograph two bald eagles duking it out with about 50 crows.  It was one of the rare times I didn't have my camera with me, mostly because I had been travelling between work meetings all day and had expensive computer gear with me (and didn't want to leave my camera in the car).  But happier when I caught a couple of decent hummingbird in flight pics :)

Hi all.  I've been thinking lately that I'm not a fan of the segregated bird threads.  Seems to me it simply creates an added layer of effort posting and viewing.  I suppose there is merit in the fact that flight shots often require more skill and should be in their own class but I'm thinking most of us are not thinking that way when we post.  My appreciation really is primarily of the bird and more of one of thankfulness to the poster for sharing what is so enjoyable.

I hereby propose that we just post to the other thread but of course I believe in democracy, so what ya-all think? :)

I missed focus slightly but it's a miracle I even got the shot. ;)

Nice Jack. 1dx + 400do out of focus shots still look decent.

I think the threads being separated is exactly for the reason you stated, its more difficult to get BIF. Throw democracy out and conquer the two threads yourself if you want them unified.
