Long Billed Curlew in Flight
This Long Billed Curlew was flying right at me and my 7D did a good job of keeping focus and tracking the action. My old 40D would not have been able to get the second shot. The positive exposure compensation helped to keep this from being a silhouette. The Willet seemed to like the show.
