ABFAB Kate! Really, Well Done!! It’s like micro surgery with a zoom lens and a trigger finger!! 🙂
Love every single picture! (Still rooting for Mike though…he did put up the good fight!!)
Thanks for the tips!

Fantastic pictures Kate and thanks for all the helpful tips on bird photography! I love all the photos but especially the one of the Pied Kingfisher, and the shot of the lilac breasted roller, which is one of my favourite birds…so beautiful!

That shot of the roller is one of the favourites I took while at Londolozi. I wish I would have had a slightly faster shutter speed though to freeze the wing tips. I guess I’ll just have to come back and try again! Thanks for sharing it!

Hi Kate,

I ran out of time to get that canvas made! Have to be next time.

Photograph birds doing natural movements such as pruning, bathing, or feeding make for much more interesting photographs than a bird sitting on a wall.

Hi Kate,

Stumbled upon your article and tricks earlier today. These are still very relevant a couple of years on. Hope you’re still out enjoying your bird photography.

Here is a few samples with settings of some of my latest Birds in Flight photography
