Today while visiting one of my favorite places for shorebirds, there were no birds within a good range for my 400mm lens.   However, I was able to get a few shots of birds in flight as they passed by.

Cedar Key Birds in flight

This Great White Egret was one of the first to fly by.  It came out of nowhere and I had at most 2 seconds to get a shot before it disappeared behind the mangroves.

This shot demonstrates how extremely fast modern cameras and lenses can acquire focus on a fast moving object.

Here are a few more shots from this morning.
