Can you share some details? What lens were you using and what was your f stop in the flying picture? I really like the lack of depth.

Shot with a Canon 40D and 500mm f4 L series lens. I don't have the original on this hard drive so I'm not positive about the exif data...BUT.. I usually shoot between 400-800 iso in AP mode,servo. I'd have to check the aperture setting to be sure

Don't go to any trouble for me. Those are some really nice photos. I just got in to shooting photos this year and I'm currently running a Bigma.

Good stuff guys. We get a good migration of Swans thru here in the spring. These are from last April.
