Hi and thanks for your comment.

I wish my results were always like this, I think being in the right place at the right time and having a reasonable command of your equipment helps !

On the day I took roughly 500 photos, I have about fifteen similar to the one posted here.

Many of the others I took I am well pleased with but on that occasion I wanted a full frame flight shot, so to get 15 with perfect focus and good composition from about forty of that subject is I suppose a pretty good result.

The 200-400 is a great lens and coupled with the zoom feature gives much better chance of getting a suitable composition, even with the bird flying toward you it is quite easy to zoom in or out as necessary.

With a subject of that size even with the Tc attached really fast AF is guaranteed.
cheers
