    Sure are quick. I think I took 6 shots in about 3 seconds and each one he's in a different position.

    You've got a bird studio, haven't you? Own up. :p Love the blue and those flowers... great shot.
    What's your focussing technique for these birdies? Centre AF point only and AI Servo?
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe I wish. Darned birds are most uncooperative on the whole.
    Shot with AI-AF mode, centre point only (continuous shot mode in case they decide to take flight).
