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.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head

1/1000 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, spot metering, +2/3 exposure compensation

1/640 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, spot metering, +2/3 exposure compensation
