the joys of flight photography, I've gone out specifically to practice photographing birds in flight. Yesterday I popped into Bushy Park and stood by one of the main ponds as various people fed the birds. There were a lot of gulls there as well as various other waterfowl, jackdaws and pigeons. With all the activity there was plenty of opportunity for flight shots.
Here are just a handful of the shots I took.
The 1D MkIIN certainly makes the job of getting flight shots easier. With forty-five auto-focus points it tracks targets much more accurately than my 20D, and more often than not the focus is bang on.
