In Flight

And now, for your entertainment, here are some pictures I took today to test the "Sports" setting (fast - shutter speed) on the camera.  I was attempting to catch a moment in time from a bird's flight.

This worked better by pure chance yesterday when I tried to take a photo of a bird at the feeder, and it just happened to fly away.  When I am trying to take a photo the moment the bird leaves the feeder, my reaction time is too slow!

 Bad flight path (rear shot) - Strike one!

Bad flight path (rear shot again) and bird is overexposed from noon sun.  Strike Two!

Nearly ever other shot.....Late to the party!  Strike Three!
