Hello Hunter, my name is Kelshaw, i joined Photozo just a couple of weeks ago, i have sent in some posts recently and a couple of photos for advice and opinions.
I too love wildlife, wish my photos were as good as yours.
I think your photo is fantastic, how did you shoot it?
When shooting birds I always shoot in continuous mode. When shooting flight shots I try and pump the shutter button to allow the auto focus to reset as you pan the shots. You have to use a fast shutter speed and have really good lighting for it to work well.
Excellent composite. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the 'haloing' around the birds
That bothered me too. The shots were pretty badly underexposed and as Bishop mentioned it's a tad dark. I pretty much pushed it as far as I could without making the halo really bad, I tried to lighten it more but it looked the birds were glowing.
