BIF ok with manual focus lens

I think I can deflate the myth almost officially that manual focus lens are not suitable for BIF pict. It is entirely workable . Today it was slightly dimmer and I had to use iso1600. Nonetheless it is critical to use 1/2500s or faster and aperture F8 to get the right DoF. That seemed to be about it. Even with the tiny buffer of K100D, I still get ok shots.

All were taken with my manual A300mmF4 . Seagull as taken at Toogoodpond of Toronto

The above gave me some trial run before getting these this morning. Environment was rough/tough but it was manageable with the payback.
