BIF… From Dining Room and Deck

Creating excellent photographs of Birds In Flight (BIF) is considered to be among the most difficult achievements in wildlife photography. Recently, camera manufacturers have incorporated extraordinary autofocus tracking and subject detection capabilities into the latest mirrorless cameras. While this technology has made BIF capture far easier to achieve, it is not a substitute for good photographic technique. Subject knowledge, proper frame rates, and accurate panning are all still necessary. Flickers, Wood Peckers, and Jays are drawn to the feeders at my home where I practice and strive for that BIF success almost daily from my dining room and deck.
