Blurred Wing Lift Off

Caught this Marbled Godwit talking off while laying down with my ground pod.  He was a couple of feet off of the ground at this point.  Was using aperture priority but the shutter speed was low enough to blur the wings.  Glad to see that his head was relatively sharper than his wings which is always the challenge with these type of shots.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on Skimmer ground pod.

1/320 sec @ F7.1, ISO 200, spot metering + 2/3 exposure compensation, no flash
