Beautiful. The first one is amazing. In my opinion the second could be as good, even better than the first if there was not the furthest swan.

Outstanding. You're becoming a master with that 70-200.

holy cow! 1/2000th F/8 at only ISO 200?!?

How on earth did you do that?

The highest speed I've ever been able to get was 1/1000th and that was snowboarding at mount hood in the middle of summer with blinding direct sunlight and white snow reflecting it everywhere, and I still had to push the ISO up a little while shooting at f/3.5-5.6

Hard to find a more beautiful bird in flight, Just magnificent Dave. Movment starts at the coast, then interior birds follow. this is the heads-up Ive been waiting for.
Thanks
