Taken with P950 in Shutter Priority mode. Learning to master this mode now, for action shots, although Bird mode is still my favourite. Image is cropped.

These birds are Eurasian Coots. Taken in Victoria, Australia.

Great image. Wildlife in motion is my favorite. Since you're working on mastering shutter priority, I will offer a friendly suggestion. Experiment using a faster shutter speeds than 1/400 seconds. A little faster shutter may have eliminated some of the motion blur of the coot's wingtips. OTOH, perhaps that was what you were after.

Anyway, it's a neat shot so thanks for sharing it. I enjoy your images and envy the colorful subjects that seem to abound in your vicinity.

Thanks, appreciated - yes, experimenting currently but the blur kind of works too I have upped to 1/800 today - very bright day outside but harsh shadows so will see how it goes.
