Great photos. The Hawk Conservancy looks like a wonderful organization. Have you settled on SAF for this type of photography with the E-M1, or do you still use CAF at times?

it is a great set up

For most of the time I now stick to SAF and do the tracking myself by continuously following the bird, keeping focus by repeatedly half-closing the shutter button, then a short, typically 3 burst, catches the action I'm after

the difficult bit is learning to keep the small focus point where I want it as I track the subject, particularly with the Falcons!

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
