Hello Fellow TN friends,
been trying for so long to get out to a nice place to photograph birds in flight mode :p
Today I got the camera, it is very overcast, but still kept my will.
I took so many nice clicks and I will share with you.
I had a great result putting my camera into AI Servo and activate the 16 squares active points rather than the single shot on the evaluative spot.
I don't know and I hope you my friends tell me, with these light conditions if I could get better details underneath the wings, thank you for your critiques and comments always.

Ciao Nelson, great capture of fantastic in-flight bird, perfect focus, wonderful colors, fine details, and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Nelson,
Well captured this Snake Bird in flight. Well focused. Natural color and good details. I'm not good in such type of flying Photography, so can't help you how to get well exposure in the under wing shadow area during clicking.
Thanks for showing,

Hello Nelson,
What a terrific inflight capture you have presented to us. Super sharp focus resulting is exceptional detail. Colors are true and natural and the bird is framed nicely. The only way to lighten the underside of the wings that I know of is with flash. Depending on the distance the subject is from you, you may have to increase the intensity of the flash. I at times use an attachment to the flash itself ( a Better Beamer ) which can really reach out to some remarkable distances. You always risk the chance of too much exposure or you may get eye reflection such as red eye. I have had some really good results at times wit this method.

Hello Nelson,
Difficult to get the right exposure on the bird in this conditions. This is an African Darter, Anhinga rufa. Excellent sharpness and a great composition.
