I recently attended a wonderful photography workshop in Florida. It was led by Jim Neiger http://www.flightschoolphotography.com/ and the focus was on techniques for getting better flight shots of birds. I learned a lot and here are some of my favorite images.
Each morning we were at a lake with over 500 pair of nesting Ospreys. This one just landed in a large cypress tree. The shot was taken right after sunrise and captures that beautiful, soft, early morning light.
