Birds in flight (BIF, it's a thing) is a challenge. Good BIF is a miracle.

Just try looking through a straw and framing something like this . . .

the worse it is to track one

Just got a dot sight that sits in the hot shoe that allows one to frame without looking through the viewfinder (Nikon DF-M1). However it is only good for use with autofocus and I'm manual focus with the teleconverter. Next time I'm using the big lens without the TC I'll try it.

Good thing with the Vultures is they are slow and circling so usually get more than one chance!

and thanks!
