These were taken at ISO 500 at 1/2000th of a second. Few of us expect to get tack sharp photos of birds in flight but modern lenses and cameras are making it easier. Vibration reduction, dynamic focus areas and continuous focusing (Nikon terminology) certainly help. My aim was to try out my new Nikon D500 and the 200-500mm lens. Getting detail in all the white areas, specifically around the head was where I could have done better (with some more negative exposure compensation). Overall this new focusing technology in-camera has evolved and made things a great deal easier. Now I just need to remember that white subjects need some under exposure or you lose detail. For the record these are almost full frame, only cropped to 8 1/2 by 11.
