    There seem to be a lot of these about just now, this one is in the Galloway Forest. They seem to be making a comeback and about time. (y)

    It's a simple staging you use every time, background out of focus, great foreground for the subject - it just works so well.

    Hey Stu, cheers matey.

    I will be working on the jumpers, noted from last time is that I could probably zoom in a bit more. I think I was at about 280mm for this one but had 400 available. I did this to give more chance of capturing the squirrel in frame but there was no need, as relatively speaking, the airbourne part is quite slow, it's not over in a flash so to speak and the MKiv more than keeps up with it. So, rather than crop next time, I'm going to zoom in on an area and watch the squirrel begin to jump, then fire off some shots, and cross my fingers. :LOL:

    Head on is coming, but I want to nail the sideyways ones first. Circumstances sometimes prevent me getting out there but it's coming. ;)

    Mate could you pop up a stick in the estimated flight path do you have the prefocus button on your lens ,like they do o nthe superteles?? frame prefocus on stick remove stick ,sit back and try to press shutter at right time?? prefocus buttong to rreturn focus to that spot?? I think peering through the view finder will be too slow ha ha yeah it is proper spray and prey stuff:banana: it's what I sort of attempted with the goldies Dale.but it's so worth the effort images i'd love to try for buddy

    ,all the luck with it mate def zoom in :) One of those full frame mid air will be glorious:cool:

    Nope, not tried pre focusing that way Stu. For this, I pre focused on the 'landing pad'. I tweaked it manually then whilst zoomed in 10x with liveview and left it on manual focus, effectively locking focus manually, as long as I didn't touch anything. I had been watching the squirrel jump a few times previously. I didn't watch through the viewfinder for it jumping for the shot, I watched with the naked eye, then when it launched, held the shutter button down. I'm working on my method, getting out there to do it isn't easy at times for various reasons but I will, soon. (y)

    Thanks for the well wishes, appreciated.:)
