Flying Things :)

Most of these were shot with a EOS 5D mark IV and EOS 7D mark II with 100-400mm L II or 70-300mm L II lenses, but you'll have to look at the EXIF to see which. The ISS was shot with the 100-400 and a 1.4III extender. The Hoverfly was shot using the EF 100mm L macro.

 

I was laying on my back shooting Swallow-tailed Kites and this shot presented itself.

My complements on fine photos with great detail. The first one with the airliner and moon top them all. Surprising what we get when we least expect it.

Thank you. I was hoping for a Swallow-tailed Kite to fly across it. And yes, the least expected shots are usually the most exciting.
