In the wild areas of Montana, wild birds keep their distance. And if they feel you are too close, they raise a vocal alarm and pretty soon the entire animal kingdom knows were you are and which way you are going. Not so along Florida's Intercostal Waterway. This big boy flew towards me so fast, flew so close, I couldn't fit him in the viewfinder. By the way - hat's off to the Canon R3 with eye tracker. Before the R3 I was happy to get one in-focus, flying image . After the R3? I have a hard time deciding which flying image I want to keep... there are now so many to choose from.
