Catching bugs by phalalcrocorax Catching bugs by phalalcrocorax
Another picture I like a lot ;-) Catching the smallest bird in Europe catching a bug... this was so freaking hard :D

Picture done in my city, Paris, but the picture is not part of the "urban wildlife" project.

Thanks a lot for your message.

I think that with the datas, you can guess what lens I used : it was the 300 2.8 L IS (the MkI version). It is a light lens and the most important : the autofocus is really fast. I think that the best lens for that situation was the 300 f4 (lighter, closer mini focus lenght and faster autofocus)

Best regard
