a7R4, 100-400mm @ 262mm, ISO 1000, f/5.6, 1/1600s

Yes the a7R4 can track a bird flying at you accurately even when shooting from a severely rocking and moving boat...

Amazing shot EJ! Impressive tracking with 7R4 on incoming bird and moving boat. But it take skills of the photographer to get shot like this regarding any camera.

Great image with the a7R4, EJ. A very impressive shot to pull off on a rocking and moving boat. Excellent work – tack sharp. Well done.

Nice work, I would love to even see one...
The Focused water gives a nice definition for the bird.
