Nice owl shots Sundance.
Don't no why pictures pasted from photobucket lose quality but i have noticed this in the past and have recently deleted my photobucket account.
Only ever used it for odd shots i didn't want on my flickr anyway

Can't see the first one Paul - Harris Hawks are they?

To be honest mate even on a bright sunny day at 1/1000 I'd be on ISO 800 anyway - they look fine to me

how NOT to do birds in flight:

Well. i was at Butlins this weekend and they had a bird of prey display. Finally found a use for my 45-200 mm micro
four thirds lens.
Shot using shutter mode at 1000. nice and sunny day. outdoors all lovely. Shot in RAW in case i cocked it up. hardly any cropping etc. camera froze the action brilliantly. BUT one problem. USER ERROR. I left it on iso 1600 from the night befores pics of bumper cars. so they are all a bit grainy. AND my Topaz de-noise trial ran out.

First one is shot at 45mm (90mm on film) no cropping. it was right infront of my face and landed on a pole at arms length behind me.

Buzzards are actually the commonest bird of prey nowadays, at this time of year they may be more visible due to territory squabbles and breeding displays.

Some great shots there guys

I've been getting up at 5am and walking over 2 miles to a spot I know to try to get a decent Red Kite shot. The problem with these birds is the huge wing span, once the sun gets up they are in their own shadow and the light is wrong. There is only a short window of opportunity when the sunlight gets above the tree-tops, but still with enough up-light on the bird.

Today I finally got one worth the wait, albeit about a 50% crop - I'm still going to keep at it for a full-framer though . (I actually got 6 full frame shots earlier on but the sunlight hadn't risen enough for them to be usable )
