This is the first bird of prey that I captured in flight. IMO it's an OK image; not stellar, a bit soft, a tad far for my lens (heavy crop)but I'm still learning. I have sharper images in the series that I'll edit later. It was taken in harsh light (a bit late in the day - about 11:00 a.m.). This series taught me the importance of a high shutter speed because I missed a few in the series due to motion blur (the cormorant was taken the following day at a higher shutter speed). The background is crap, but that's where the bird was. Once again, not a gem, but it's something to look at and learn from - faster shutter speed!
