Hi Lawrence,

Did you capture this image in a single shot, or is it the "best" of a rapid-fire sequence?

Cheers,
Loyd

Rapid fire (10 fps, continuous anti-shock (equivalent of mirror lock up). Oly can shoot electronic shutter up to 60 fps.

Should you be going here:

Its more to it than spray and pray/luck. Whether i shot 30 shots and 1 is a keeper or i shot 30 shots and 30 are keepers i displayed the best ONE - I only need 1 for my personal satisfaction (ie. buying more than 1 lottery ticket, i only need one to win). The manufacturers make the burst capabilities, i just exploit the features for my needs. However, in this process i pre-focused at 2.8 and the bird happened to come in as anticipated through time of studying them - to get the bird in focus is more important than how fast my camera can shoot.

I agree. Increase your odds. My birder friend used to miss a lot before he used rapid fire. These days he captures some spectacular images. Great foresight on your part, by the way.

Thank you for taking the time to evaluate my shot. As you may be able to tell I've become very attached to this technique and may be too defensive at times due to previous conversations.

Again, thanks and I hope I didnt come off in a wrongful manner.

No worries. Hope to see more of your work. I'm an avid birder.
