  1. Fantastic shots, especially the in-flight. The wiki link was interesting as well, as I’ve never taken time to study them, thank you.

  4. Flying Gannets = superb. Love the timing, crispness of focus and colours, etc. Was this a pan or was the bird in focus stalling out?

    • Hello Allan πŸ™‚

      Thank you!

      I Had the lens on F8 and set the iso to auto up to about 800 and just panned like you say. When I got home I was very pleased to see the results!

      Thank Allan
