[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I photographed white storks. I made an effort
for an inflight session. It is rather difficult especially today where the sunlight is too hard.
Most difficult is focusing...this picture is cropped a lot..and sharpness isn't what I really wanted. She or he was really enjoying her- or himself using the warm air going up. Their speed is also amazing in these conditions. Some of these birds don't do the trip to Africa any more 'cause they have the food here. Yes, the food. You know they even eat moles. They know where he is by studying the movements of the ground..with their beak they go 20cm under the ground, throw the mole in the air and swallow it.
Seasoned inflight photographers..I need a tutorial (more or less).

Hello ! I see you are from Belgium... Last spring i tried to shoot storch in Zwin Reservation near Knokke and i encountered the same issues as you : very difficult to get good focus at the right moment, shots taken from far away and so on. What kind of lens did you use ? I had a 70/300 Sigma Macro Apo II, but many photographers there had much heavier lenses.

very nice shot.
