pigeons may approach shadowy lurking place from direction where sun gives them best view and when they turn to escape they escape sun too :)

The late start on Sunday made for challenging light conditions, so I did the best I could and concentrated more on tracking the action. Managed a few acceptable frames, including a surprise flyby from the neighborhood kingfisher. I got them coming...

Out for a walk this afternoon and saw a raptor wheeling a long distance away, and presumed is was a Buzzard (European, not a US Turkey Vulture/Buzzard). Got a tiny 350px long image from the R5/100-500. After some sharpening and doubling the size in Topaz Gigapixel, much to my surprise it was a Sparrowhawk, the first I have ever caught in flight. It's one for the record rather than for much else, but it's remarkable how ell the R5/100-500mm performs.

I'm not much of one to photograph birds in flight, so challenging! I'm more of a landscape photographer but I need to experiment to improve. The hummingbirds are from a rental on the bluffs above Bodega Bay CA 2020 and the three birds of prey are from inside the grounds of the Hohenwerfen Castle in Austria 2017. All taken with 5D IV and 100-400 II. My goodness hummingbirds are incredibly challenging to photograph in the wild!
