    First attempt shooting birds with the Panny 100-300. I did not keep my shutter speed high enough most of the time. I am too used to faster 35mm lenses.

    Slow shutter speeds is a nasty habit that I picked up when high ISO looked horrible. When I used to shoot BIF with my Nikon gear, 1/500th was the minimum, VR was off, and I prayed for sunny skies (as well as dialed in a bit of exposure compensation so my birds were not underexposed). Looking forward to more images.

    Just after take off...

    Some of the birds shot on stands/perches were injured and can not be released into the wild. Those shot in flight are typically owned by licensed falconers. You can tell by watching the falconers just how much they love their birds.
