Wow.. nice shots... I wonder if the new D-SLRs are able to reduce their shutter lag and focus fast enough to capture this too...

This and the other one similar to this are my favourites.

I'm viewing on laptop screen, but are some of them slightly underexposed in the sense that the 'white' colour of the stork varies from picture to picture? I note that some of the exposures are equivalent to sunny 16... but we hardly get sunny 16 conditions in singapore :)

Do you need special lens to take this kind of shot?

Erwin,
You are absolutely correct when you noticed that some of the pics are underexposed - I deliberately dialed in -2/3 or -1 stop underexposure to avoid blowing out the whites on the storks back.

For a couple of the pics, i then tweaked the mid-tone/shadows portion of the Curves to regain some of the detail in those areas (don't you just love digital ;) )

The conditions when I took the pics was really sunny, but in reality, because the storks are flying in and across a wide range of lighting conditions (ie - the right hand side is dark green foliage background, the bottom half is a mid-toned green lake, the top half is bright blue sky, and the left is in shadow), it was hard to adjust for every condition, especially when panning on a single bird as it takes off from the left, flies right across (or high over) the lake, makes a right banking turn and then comes in for a landing.

p.s. the "whites" on the storks varies from a bright white to a very dark grey, so that could explain the difference.
