    Was out working on birds in flight today and think I got a couple keepers. Just some seagulls but good for practising on.

    There was also a eagle sitting in a tree across the river but he would not co-operate at all. Just sat there in the worst possible location for lighting but with a bit of PP managed to salvage a couple shots. Might be a little noisy but the sun was just to the right of the shot and he was basically sitting in the shade from the tree. Combine that with a white and black bird and it made "correct" exposure next to impossible.

    OM-D E-M5:
    Seagulls shot with Nikon ED 180mm 2.8 AIS
    Eagles shot with Canon FD 300mm F4L with 1.4x-a extender

    Great photos! The Canon FL Glass and new Oly sensor seem to be a killer combo.

    I was told you could only capture BIF if you have the fastest C-AF tracking autofocus. So tell us the truth... which DSLR and AF lens did you REALLY shoot these with? :tongue:
