Fantastic! How do you nail the focus?

You could say luck. I know where they like to perch, manual focus on a likely point, as soon as a bird enters that area hit the shutter at 10 frames a second. Many out of focus shots but always some in sharp focus. If I try autofocus I can miss every shot.

That's incredible, thank you for explaining the focus tip as well.

Beautiful!!

I must get into gear to emulate you. I often have five to ten species in view as I sit near my lounge door, but no photographs to do it justice yet.
