Hello Everyone.

I know I already have posted a giraffe, but i really like this one and what to share it with you. Just before I exit The Mara we passed this lovley family, this is only 2 in a family of 6 (i think). You can barley see the second giraffe, its to the right of the the other and you can only see its head. The were having their evening dinner when we passed and I thought it looked really nice.

Hi Mattias, nice composition but the light is too harsh, you need to filter it.
About your question on how to shot birds in flight. It's better to focus the bird, follow it for some second, stop the following a little behind the subject and press the button when it come into the perfect composition.
If you try lot of times you will get the perfect moment to stop following and shot!
