Digital Photography 101 - Mockingbird Studies

These photos were taken last Thursday within a period of about five minutes. All photos are of the same Northern Mockingbird.

First seen on the patio wall:



Flew to the house roof:


From the roof ...


... to the mesquite tree behind the wall.


Then back to the wall ...


and off to better things.

Pam, These photos are so sharp and clear. I am amazed at the clarity of the ones in flight!
Would be great to hear how you are capturing these wonderful images.

You get the absolute best wing and flight shots I have ever seen. Amazing and beautiful. I'm with endment on this, how do you do this?

That second photo is just wonderful. You caught the mockingbird at the perfect moment and with no motion blur!
