Wood Stork. Viera Wetlands FL

One of the reasons to use Sports Mode on the SX50HS for BIF, is the speed of getting into the mode. I saw this Wood Stork take off 1000 yards or more beyond me, and had time to twist the Control Dial to Sports, zoom out, and get off a sequence of 10 shots as it flew past me. Poor light, but still I am happy to have the shot at all.
