This is my newest favourite bird photo. The usual camera I use is an AF Canon 500D. At the time of this photo it was in for a service so I was shooting with an old Nikon Manual focus. Big Deal - I say, as I write this - I shot the whole of Blue Yonder on manual focus and slide film. Yeah but after a little while the auto focus is just so nice to use for action, but i'll tell ya what, the manual focus is definitely more satisfying. I shot the wave photo about a week later...and guess what, it's my new favourite wave photo.
