f13, ISO 200, 1/200sec - flash used
Taken at the Butterfly and Wildlife Park, Norfolk
Ok its not tack sharp, its not perfectly focused and heck fullsize it looks even softer - oh and htis is a crop of the original shot as well -- but its darn well flying it is!!
It was the end of the day and this one was hovering around another is it species for a good while, letting me fire off a series of shots to try and capture the inflight motion. It was only because he was hovering at the time that I was able to get the AF on the lens to lock on (I needed AF, though its nothing special on the 70mm its a lot faster than me) and fire off the shots. I did try highspeed mode on the flash, but the light given off was not enough - though I suppose I could have opened up to around f8 for this capture and thus given myself some more light to play with.
Any comments/advice welcome thank you
