Flying Ducks.

I was experimenting with manual setting. It's a tricky business. I'll see if I want to try to get used to it. Only for flight shots.
Canon 50D
Canon 300 f2.8 L IS plus 1.4 TC
ISO 320
f 5.6

Perfect syncron

It looks like you master the manual mode. In dead it is very tricky and hard to use, especially when you are in hurry
Great shots. Never seen two ducks in synch so good.

Wonderful shots the composition of the second and the colours of the head and feet! :D

The two in synch is a great catch Karl.

Super shooting Karl, especially the second. :D I can't remember if I've already asked you this or not but have you done the AF micro lens adjustment on your 50D? I just found a new article and focusing target and I've gone from a +1 to a +12 on my 50D 300 f2.8 combo. Hopefully it's nice tomorrow and I'll get out and field test the adjustment and see how it worked.

I do the same now. It is difficult to keep these big birds flying at high speed. I have luck in one aspect is sunny most of the time guilders. so you can shoot lower ISO. Good work on these issues and take. You will see a big difference when you have a great enlightenment.
