Beautiful shot of this lady bird on the hunt. You have a keen eye for great shots like this, Yves, and it's obvious that your new camera is working very well for you.

Thanks Heather, It's true my new camera create photo with a little better colours and sharp details than the previous one. I love the experience with the 2X teleconverter. It forces me to work within narrow limits but I love the chalenge and I am developping my way out of it.

Clifford Dupuis

Nice action shot, well captured

Yves Langlois

Thank you Clifford

Jane LeBlanc

Well done, Yves. Action shots are so difficult. Great focus on the eyes.

Yves Langlois

Thank you so much Jane.

Debra Plett

Cool shot from the skilled photographer. Expert timing Yves with spot on focus. You must have been excited when you captured this image.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Debra. Now that I reach the same quality of photo with the 2X I am very excited to walk the nature with my new setup. You know Debra, That new A7R4 camera is so complex that there is many reason why the autofocus will not work properly. So yes, I was delighted when I saw thar quality of photo on my computer. Try to do some photo op with the female blackbird, You will love it.

Debra Plett

I am sure you will master all the settings of the A7R4. Looking forward to seeing more images Yves.

Frozen in action is a female red-winged blackbird The tail down and the wings rounded in front means she was hovering when she caught the big dragonfly.
