Florida Bird-Life

The birdlife here in and near Bradenton Florida where I am wintering is a great beyond words. I am still a newbie at this genre, but am getting the hang of panning for birds in flight shot at Robinson Preserve in Bradenton. My first images, shot from a chair in my backyard were of Turkey Vultures – ominous looking creatures – (not posted) circling around the neighborhood. The feeding osprey was on a utility pole across the street from my house. There are a host of great birding locales I hope to visit. These are all Nikon digital images – top 3 and last image are D850 and 24-70 and the others are D500 and 500mm PF lens, a phenomenal combination for flighted birds. My hit rate for birds in flight is getting better from being mindful of the position of the sun and wind direction.
