I generally facilitate most of my Birds / Birds in Flight Photography Training at Woodbridge Island, Milnerton, Cape Town. during early December 2022 I had an opportunity for a client practical photography training session at Intaka Island, Century City, Cape Town.

Intaka Island Photography Training Objective
This practical and hands-on training session was an opportunity for my clients to experiment with Canon camera Manual Mode and Aperture Priority (Av) Mode settings for water birds and / or birds in flight. We settled in the bird watching / photography hide facing away from the sun and was greeting with quite exquisite afternoon light.

I have taken a few birds / birds in flight shots during the photography training session and herewith a list of the Intaka Island birds (top to bottom) and the general Canon camera / lens settings I personally used for all the birds in this post:
