    I was in my backyard shed (my blind) and decided to take some practicing in flight photos. I watched where the birds would go on a regular basis. I setup and focused on a spot where the birds are coming in to. I setup the camera to the highest shutter speed somewhere near or over 1000, I had to use a high ISO to acheive the higher shutter speed. It takes somewherearound a 1000 so not to blur. You also have to use the burst speed on your camera. This was really my first attempt at getting closer in flight photos. Let me know what you think. I would like to perfect this. It takes timing as well.

    Wonderful! :thumbsup:

    4 and 5 are my favorites, although I wish I could see the whole bird in 5!
