Have been testing and practicing with the AF on the R6. It really is amazing in comparison to my old 7d2(although not a magic bullet by any means).These shots are not 100% perfect but the reality is I saw the bird at the last second, swung the camera up and started shooting. The sped at which the AF grabbed the subject was incredible

This shot is SO great, it's right on the edge of scary. :-(
I'm hoping to be able to get such a shot with the new RF 100-500.
You should be able to. I have only been able to see these great birds hunt on just one occasion when I visited Nova Scotia (you lucky Canadians!) and got a similar shot with a 100-400mm II on a 7DII. It was when I also got the shot of the Osprey with the flounder I use as my avatar. Maybe I'll get another chance post-covid to visit.

It's such fun going back BC and reworking shots with the latest software here he is a few seconds later catching a fish. He was so close, I had to zoom out - that's why I always take a zoom because the best shots are often up close.
