R5, 500f4, 1.4x, 1/2500s, f/6.3, ISO 800, manual

Photographed on Long Island while having fun with the R5. The eye-tracking works really well, which I find quite impressive because the eyes of Terns blend in with the black head plumage.

What a great series this is, Axel! I love the action captured in each picture - and all the different fish the terns have caught!

Another terrific image in this series of tern flight shots. It appears you've observed this bird(s) so you know their habits well which often leads to better images such as the ones you have displayed.

Excellent flight shot with fish! Nice to see what the R5 can do in capable hands.
