Birds in flight with Finepix?
3

I have never done "street" photography in my life and I'm no good at people stuff.  I tried a wedding for a friend once, what a disaster!  My interest is wildlife and if there happens to be a beautiful sunset I'll give it a try.  I've heard it said here that BIF is impossible with our Finepix.  Well, that's pretty close to true I think but sometimes it's possible with big birds gliding.  This evening the ospreys were fishing, flying by looking for fish.  Getting focus at the beginning of a burst is hard and getting proper exposure when they fly in and out of trees makes it really hard.  Here's a couple that are just O.K. if you don't zoom in.

The setting sun gave a yellow tint to the ordinarily brilliant white.  It finally got too dark but that sunset was awesome.  I'm lucky this reservoir is only a few miles from home.

This last Eagle shot is old, one I've posted before.  The first Eagle shot with my S1.

No, none of these are going to win a prize but I sure have a lot of fun trying.
