OMG!! What a beautiful capture. Interesting how they make it appear so effortless just gliding along. Well done and thanks a million for posting.

You're welcome. Here is the other shot of the same bird. I was practicing tracking at 450mm and was very happy that they came out at all. Those Terns are quick.

I think one of the BIFs that I have tried-and-failed with the most must be partridge. It is mostly because their flight path is close to the ground, and the background is almost invariably some sort of green/brownish field - and that keeps baffling my AF. I hope when that video is released tomorrow, it's all going to be a lot of details about how their new-and-improved AF system provides accurate focus in situations when birds are flying past a background of earthy colours. Actually, I have a STRONG feeling that this will be the main message of that video tomorrow!

But meanwhile I actually DID manage a decent partridge for once!

Not that sharp, but I like the posture of this least tern

Had a little territorial dispute this morning. The Heron decided he did not want any competition at breakfast. Chased the Egret off to the next pond.
