Good shot, Uma!
1/4000th sec has stopped all the action, while keeping the second Heron in the bokeh. Smile
Sometimes, even that speed is not enough to stop the action. I have been attempting, daily, to shoot Black Kites from my balcony, using that speed, without success! They do not even fly at great speed, just gliding around the skies. Sad
