First Birds in Flight Photography Workshop for 2018

Private Birds in Flight Training Cape Town
During our recent private Birds in Flight Photography Workshop in Milnerton / Woodbridge Island, Cape Town I captured a few local species.

I generally don't get much opportunity when out with workshop delegates, but it turned out such a gorgeious morning that I could not resist a few captures.

All images with Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm f/5.6L USM prime lens
