    This shot is so good that it deserves to be shown more than once.

    LOL Raid....it's a shot I've been trying to get for a couple of weeks....I think I succeeded, although I will keep shooting low shutter speed photos.

    The images look good, the light looks natural and not "flashed"

    I think the birds themselves could be just a bit brighter but that could be my monitor.

    I took this shot last fall, on a bear viewing trip. I used an exposure compensation of -1 to avoid blowing out the head feathers, and just held the button down and hoped for the best. Sometimes it works out!

    Couple weeks back TDP linked to a bunch of really fun to watch videos produced by B&H of some famous/highly regarded photographers. I watched several and Ron (forgot his last name) was a hoot and very insightful. As I learned from my pics of the two Big Horn Sheep doing their head butt - FPS is like altitude in a plane - the only stuff you can't use is the stuff beneath you, more is simply better. His example was a moment that could not be anticipated and only through FPS did an image get captured w/ a mom giraffe and baby - there was never going to be a skilled moment that predicted the event. As the effective cost of any given frame is basically -0- go ahead and let the camera do the work. You have to either work to get to the right place at the right time with the right light or simply get very lucky. I have noticed that the harder I work the luckier I get so I am all for putting the finger down.

    Well done - LOVE IT
