Last week it was pretty awful here for shooting - rain and heavy overcast. I shot these out back of birds waiting their turn at our feeders using a tripod, the A-77 and Big Beercan. I liked the even lighting which helped a lot shooting at high ISO.
Went for a raptor drive in Central Oregon; we saw lots of Rough Leg, Ferruginous, and various forms of Red Tail. The trick was to practice ID. There were also lots of Bald and golden Eagles. These critters were very camera shy (obviously being hunted) and we got very few pictures.
Last week one of my bidding friend was testing the old version of Sony 300/2.8 G (he works at camera shop), so I took a few shots on my A99. The AF was very quick and it's not too heavy for handhold.
WOW someone is having lot of fun shooting flying ducks! They are very well captured. Good details, vivid colour, nice composition, you got everything right.
