    What do you folks think of this sequence? I missed the first hawk in flight during the show, but when I realized that they were setting up for another flyer, I switched to AI Servo, and managed to capture these (using EOS 40D and EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM in Program mode). Click on these tiny images for larger versions.

    This owl weighs about three pounds and has a wingspan of almost six feet.

    Looks like you may have got some really good shots there, but the pics are so small it's hard to tell.

    :confused: All of the linked images are small JPEGs (1936x1288 pixels), straight from the EOS 40D without any post processing. At 2.5 megapixels, that's not large enough to fill a 30" monitor or print a poster, but it shows pretty decent resolution. I also recorded 3888x2592 14-bit RAW files, but at 13 MB each, they are too large to post.

    Anty - clicky on the photos for larger ;)

    A great series of shots - well done with managing to keep the focus on the bird through the flight!
    I really like the last 2

    D'oh! I'm such an eedgit! Didn't see the notation about clicking to get a larger image.

    Love 7, 8 and 16 especially. What a beautiful bird.
