    That is absolutely wonderful . I have seen many bee eater shots especially from Africa not many as spectacular or beautiful as this. BG superb as well. This looks like a great Camera, can I ask you whether you are happy at 1/3200th or as I am finding with the A1 have to be at 1/4000 or even 1/5000 to get the extremely fast movements of the wingtips for example sharp..Tops.

    Cool looking shot ... well done to capture this behavior .

    But , for me , IQ has suffered as there are finer details missing , details looking coarse not fine . Plus there are some artifacts within the subject ( rolling shutter ? )

    I think the is a great action image, to even get the bee sharp is great and super lucky! The pose is dynamic. I agree with Ian that your shutter speed was a bit too low here. For something like this I'd go with 1/4000 or 1/5000 sec, the head is just a bit soft but the rest is so great that can be forgiven IMO. I also see some rolling shutter artifacts in the leading edge of the far wing, not too distracting though.

    Beyond spectacular. Far beyond. May we assume that this is cropped from a horizontal original?

    Hi Ian,

    I do not believe that the camera makes a difference as far as blurred wingtips. I have never had a problem with those. There is no rolling shutter with the a1. I've used both cameras and for me, the a1 is far better.

    with lvoe, artie

    I mostly shoot at 1/3200 and 1/4000 and I have no problem with that.
