It’s a Bird

Long-time readers will know that I’ve been trying to get good shots of birds in flight for a while now.  To facilitate this quest, I recently upgraded my camera and added a longer lens.

The results?  Mixed.  Many of these shots are blurry, or too far away (or in too-low light) for the detail I want, or oddly cropped because I wasn’t fast enough to get the framing I wanted.

But they’re better than I’ve had before and at least it’s harmless fun.  Onward and upwards.
