Location: Kanata Area (Off Eagleson Road)
Date: Sep 26, 2010
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 200

Camera was supported, with a home made stock support. Which really helped with the tracking and thus sharpness. Plus producing some wing blur. I'm always impressed, how the stock can steady hand held panning. This was at 1/320 of a second. Man do I love my 400 5.6. When you use it rite, the results are fantastic! If you have the means, I highly recommend it!

Nice combination of sharpness and motion blur. Might benefit from a bit of a contrast boost.

With it's high degree of difficulty, the German judge gave this dive high marks :-)

These are very difficult to shoot - very shy birds (at least around here). Biggest drawback is the bird blends too much with the background. Nice focus, detail, and capture of a moving object.
