Hi all,

Well, I was photoing this bird (the first attachement ), was all done, and shut the camera off and starting climbing back up.

Then s/he took off, I reached for my camera, turned it on, and shot a few shots from my hip within microseconds! Boy, it just focused and fired with no issues! second photo ...barely any start-up lag!

just wanted to share my joy!...I love my camera!

Fabulous shots of my favourite bird (and Egrets of course). They would go down well on the "Wildlife" forum I think

Well done
