I got the beginning and the end OK. But the middle was too blazing fast for me.

I love to photograph Osprey. Try upping the shutter speed and setting your focus to AI-Servo. You will be amazed at the difference it makes.

Nice set! Yes, they dive pretty darn fast.
Thank you, Jeff.

Thanks, Scott. I had the camera set to continuous autofocus. The shutter speed was 1/2500 but could have gone a little higher in this case I think.

That's the way it usually goes with action shots for me, too. Nice set.

You should try AI-Servo focus. It will let you follow the subject. Auto focus is ok, but it will only focus on what it thinks you want it to focus on.

Ok, I'm going to have to go back and check my manual. I wasn't aware that AI-Servo was that different from continuous auto-focus. Thanks for the tip.

I believe Nikon calls their 'continuous', AF-C and Canon calls theirs 'AI servo', same thing, different name.
