1st attempt at BIF with our new toy ;)

This fella flew by while they were mowing a neighbouring meadow - so it was very much a point and shoot shot -  it was only later when looking at the images that we noticed how intently he was following our every move!

I wonder who has the better "eye AF" ;)

So lovely to see these beautiful birds and they are always so inquisitive, as you discovered. Not an easy light to work with for your first attempt with the new gear but you certainly got the stare!

Nailed this one Sinuhe. Great to see your new toy coping so well despite not having it that long. Super shot.
Make your life spectacular!

Probably the last thing some mice will see. :) Nice pose and eye contact. Enjoy the new toy!

Thank you all for your kind comments - glad it turned out OK - despite the harsh light - well spotted Carol!
