They are excellent shots! I wish I had the sun and pelicans here too!
Me too, me too... Well, I have the sun but the only pelican around is in the Zoo - single bird, different species...
Where is Santa?!
Edit: I don't believe Santa will come to this forum/topic - better cameras, better lenses, better conditions (and occasionally better skills:)), more birds (if possible... Nope, mandatory!!! -all the birds of the world:mad:!). No, that guy is not THAT crazy - 24/7 and year long (and still not enough:ROFLMAO:)... No way!

I went out a few days ago and had my first attempt at hummingbird (Anna's) in flight with R5. I had no luck in the past getting a decent picture of a hummingbird in flight with handheld 5DIV. The second picture was at 1/400 (because I forgot to change the shutter speed after taking a static shot).

Both are nice. The second one even more interesting (different approach?);)

Very beautiful!
Forgetting changing the shutter speed happended so many times to me, too!
I took FV for static shots and AV for BIF, because I can use maximum shutter speed there, which doesn't work in FV. I just wish the R5 had a manual mode dial like older cameras. I don't like the mode change with the display at all.

Beautiful pictures. Well done, Dan.

It's foggy here, but I saw a Red Kite wheeling above , lower than normal presumably because of the poor visibility. This is what I got (/100-500mm iso 2000.)

Pushing through 4-stops in PL4, with DeepPrime noise reduction, using ClearView+ to minimise the fog, transferring to PS, a bit more fiddling around, replacing the sky, and a round of Topaz Denoise, and hey presto:

Excellent PT. Well done, Alan.
I did it just for the fun of seeing what you can do with garbage photos on a sensor you can push through 4ev and then push some more, and take advantage of modern software. Pushing through 4 stops from iso 2000 is equivalent to iso 32k, plus some more. And that's on the high megapixel R5.
