WATCH OUT !

By Imagephotographics
Good morning everyone !

Thanks for all your comments & votes on yesterdays in-flight barn owl.

Today's image is another in-flight shot, this is one that I nearly missed when going through the shoot for editing, I'm glad I double checked and found this before filing them away.

Hope you all have a good day !

Chris

Thanks Tim for your comment & vote.

Yeh ! I have on permanent loan a Canon 1D Mark XXV. This shoots at 125 fps, ISO @ 51200, complete with a prototype 800 f.1.2 L series lens.

Only trouble is, the batteries are the size of suitcases !

Ah, so we can expect to see some very fit and strong Canon users in the future, unless they can resolve the issues with the anti-grav unit in the lens in time for production
