Birds in Flight

DSC03112

Photographing birds in flight (BIF) is what attracts a lot of people to bird photography. Getting proper shots of the birds in action requires good equipment, good technique and a bit of luck. I dont set out to get the birds in flight, especially since my lens has a fixed f8 aperture, but on a sunny day when the birds wont quite sit still, I inevitably end up with some BIF images. Below is a compilation of some I`ve taken over the past month.
