    James, I like these shots. I do see a bit of noise and some softness, but all in all they are enjoyed.

    James.

    I agree with Paul. Good stuff.

    The second one, in particular, is soft. It is also the one most badly affected by noise and you'd need to do selective sharpening to avoid emphasising all that noise in the sky.

    I appreciate that you wanted to get a high shutter speed for the 'in flight' shots, but wonder if you needed to go as high as ISO800 in order to get that. I'm no wildlife photographer, but wonder if you needed to get to 1/4000th and 1/2500th for these. You could maybe have got them at a lower shutter speed that would have allowed you to reduce the ISO setting.

    Yes, as Donald said, the shot which needed a reasonably fast shutter speed was the last one; which has worked well at 1/2500.

    Which lens? Flying birds are never easy, even with the best of equipment.

    However, you have achieved good exposure on these shots which were into the light. I suspect that a little extra careful selective sharpening to the birds and not the sky may well be worth trying.

    The lens is a EF 400 mm 5.6L USM. I got tired of the mirror lens I was using . I wanted a 300 IS L , but I found a guy who wanted my four wheeler so I traded for the 400 L. Now with a little help from everyone I will learn how to use it.Ok lesson one lower ISO >less noise. Thanks guys I will post some more birds in next couple days. Thanks again.
