Default Photographing birds in flight

A much longer lens.. a 300mm lens is hardly enough to get a decent shot
of a bird in flight unless you are extradonarily lucky. Good God, a
200 mm is hardly enough to get a decent pic of a bird at my bird
feeder, a mere 15 feet away. However, if you try and we must all, use
spot metering, aperature priority or manual and take lots of photos, at
leasy with digital, thats cheap.


Yes and no. I took these shots with a 28-125 (equiv):

including one of my favorites:

I like the context, and I couldn't have done that with a longer lens.
