Unfortunately all my best examples are from last year's British F1 grand prix and are on the hard drives for my currently disassembled PC.

Here's a few from my first attempt at this sort of thing at the Renault world series though, all handheld with the bigma.

This set contains all of the images I have online from my Soligor 400mm. It's only about 10% birds...
