Tufted Titmice. I find taking small birds in flight an irresistible challenge! My keep discard is about 1 in 250 of fair shots and 1in 500 a keeper. one of the ways I have a modicum of success is to try to determine where the bird is going, then try to focus a spot where the bird will fly into the predetermined focused spot. I would love to hear from others who also try to take small BIF. Thanks to all ahead of time!

These are super. Thanks for being honest about your keeper rate and I like your approach. I try doing this from time to time but get frustrated quickly and move on.

Fantastic shots. I've tried but obviously never figured out how. You have. Who cares what the keep rate is - you get shots worthy of your efforts. Think I'll try your method of focusing.

These are very good tufted titmouse photos! I discovered these birds a couple years ago, and still trying to get that great shot of them. Maybe this year! It is fun to have a challenge.

Beautiful work. I get about 1 in 1,000 on small BIF's. And those are just lucky shots.
