This eagle let us get very close. My husband has a fabulous shot of the same eagle in the tree. Visit his shot at Shawn@pirsqrd.

Nice capture! I like taking shots of birds in flight. I struggle with keeping them in focus. A small aperture would help, but then the shutter speed needs to be too slow. I've tried constantly adjusting manual focus while I follow the bird in flight and snapping the shutter. Any tips?

@tdaug80 I am NOT an expert, so most of the time it is luck...and taking enough photo's that one will turn out! But everything you said was correct; I used f6.3, which is as low as this lens goes at 400mm, exposure of 1/160 and ISO 100. For me the trick is using a tripod. Thanks for your comment.

@tdaug80 Also, I'm lousy and focusing manually, so I have my camera track the subject for me.

@sstcowan I experimented with the AI-Servo auto focus mode in my camera, today. It's meant for moving subjects. I tried it out tracking some cars on the highway. The photos aren't anything special, but they are in focus. I always knew that mode was in there, but I haven't used it. I'll give it a shot the next time I'm photographing wildlife.
