A while back, Mr Tan posted some awesome birds in flight taken at a workshop offered by Ray Barlow. As these workshops are offered an hour from home I signed up. Now, I went into this knowing I was somewhat equipment challenged with a 7D and only my trusty 100-400! Sure enough I brought a knife to a gun fight being surrounded by the latest greatest camera bodies and fast lenses. Still I was determined to get the best with what I had. The location offers magnificent birds and reasonable backgrounds.
All birds offered here were captive

Here goes:

1) Eagle in need of a little shampoo:

2)Are you looking at me?

3) Intensity:

Donít worry about a knife at a gun fight. You know how to use your knife and what you got is great! Thanks.

Nice set of shots, but I think the Lanner is a little soft.

Nice work on these, with the barn owl in #8 my favorite in-flight, and the portraits are all nice and sharp. Looks like a great workshop.
