I think we all are. They are such amazing and fast flying creatures. With a long lens it is hard to keep them in frame.

Oh I don't limit myself to moving targets. I'm equally good at chopping the feet off stationary ones as well. Granted, I was timing the fly-by and joust, but you'd think I could have been aware enough to include a set of feet or a perch for the heron.

Oh no.

At least you didn't cause telephone poles to sprout from their heads.

Huh: tell me! Sometimes I'm lucky to see at least the head (in the second photo I had no choice: it's in preserved area and you go only on the marked paths, there was no angle to see the entire bird). BTW I understand what Steve means with this new topic but it's not the only the way you can miss a good photo.
