    Sea Swallows

    Two types of Tern, the first is a Common Tern and the second a Sandwich Tern. I watched a group of these for about an hour flying in from the sea with sand eels at the Ternary pool, Rye Harbour nature reserve in Sussex last week.





    Also to prove to myself that I could use the new gallery.
    All the best

    Hi Andy -


    I like those very much.

    Skilled with the camera and the new site - I see you have managed the smilies where I have not.


    Regards Barr1e

    The Sandwich Tern, named after Sandwich, Kent. Not because they're good on a bun.

    The Sandwich Tern is the stand out for me.
    It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

    The Grumpy Snapper blog.

    I like those pictures. In Sweden the Sandwich Tern is called Kentish Tern (Kentsk tärna)

    Were they difficult to photograph? I went to look at your flickr account and couldn't find them, as I wanted to check the exif data. I think your photos look great, thank you for sharing.
    Best wishes

    Hi
    I will be loading these on to Flickr but only processed them to a size I use on here. Not really difficult, these were shot with the E-M1 Mk2 using CAF at nine frames a second so these are taken form a sequence. The new camera is probably the best I've used for CAF.
    The focus point was set on the centre 9, fairly high shutter speeds and ISO 400. The lens used was the 40-150 f2.8 plus the MC14 tele-converter making a total focal length of 210mm.
    All the best

    Thanks for that. Clearly you are happy with your new camera and the settings you applied for the BIF, look perfect with sharp and detailed images on display, great shots.
