Stilts in flight - 1D4 + 500 f4 IS + 1.4x TC

I got close to these delicate looking birds ( Black-winged Stilt , Himantopus himantopus ) in northern Philippines a few days ago.

Here are some SIFs with the 1D4 + 500 f4 IS + 1.4x TC, on a 475B tripod + 516 fluid head which has become my favorite over my 3421 (aka 393) because it can do both video and action stills quite well.

700 mm, 1/1600 sec, f/6.3, ISO 800, manual exposure in available light

700 mm, 1/1600 sec, f/6.3, ISO 800, manual exposure in available light

700 mm, 1/1600 sec, f/5.6, ISO 800, manual exposure in available light
