I've been trying really hard to get a head on shot of a goose in flight but I'm having challenges with focusing. If I zoom in and try to focus on just a single goose it is like I can't grab the focus or if I do manage to grab focus I end up clipping the goose, or the goose is too close and I can't grab focus.
Is there a trick to the timing for head on shots? ie; click the shutter button ahead of time?
I've also noticed that I have trouble getting all the birds in focus in multiple bird shots and sometimes focusing is also challenging, especially when they are landing over water. I typically use an aperture of F8 and a SS of 1600-2500... Should I try a smaller aperture?
Does anyone have any words of wisdom to share on head on shots and multiple birds in flight?
