I went to the RBG Arboretum with my family today, because we thought our kids would be pretty thrilled to have birds fly onto their hands to eat.

I got a few BIF shots I was happy with, but it's sort of cheating as I was able to pre-focus on my daughter's hand and just wait for birds to start flying into frame.

I was shooting in A-mode, but looking back, I probably should have been full manual so I could set the shutter speed on my own. It was usually fast enough, but a few shots would have been better with a faster shutter.

Nothing particularly artistic about any of these shots, but they're the kind of family snapshots that I adore having.

All shot with the E-M1. I think one or two were with the 12-40, rest with the Olympus 40-150.
