    I read from the photo forum that you would need a shutter speed of 1/500s or fast to snap a flying bird, which was what I set the camera to. But I forgot to turn off the IS function in the lens, which yield a flapping wing. Well, I will do better next time.

    I think the slight blur for the flapping wing actually gives the photo some character and enhances the feel of the motion of the bird. But, that's just me.

    Yeah me too especially since my Canon A70 has caught some kind of pink eye. Luckily I found a website with a Canon post that says that they'll fix it free of charge and take care of the shipping and handling. Lucky me (not counting the fact that it's broken of course).

    I like the pics of the Inca terns. I thought you did very well catching the tern in flight.
