here's some photographs i've taken of wildlife, but with me getting a dslr is there a better way to capture, say birds, as i've struggled with my camera not recovering in time to take more shots.

they were coming in to land, and i was waiting for the right shot - but i twitched and ended up with this instead of a shot of them landing in the water :(

As far as camera settings, you need to set the camera on Shutter Priority and go about 1/800 to 1/1000 for birds that are flying so the wings wont blur. Hope this helps!
