While being at Callaway Gardens I really tried hard getting a Raptor in flight and in focus. Now I think that my location was just bad. I was off to the side so I had to zoom and focus at the same time which is close to impossible while those birds or prey fly, they are not that slow.
I think the next time I will stay at either where they take off or land (since I know now where that is). That way I should have enough time to frame the shot while they fly towards me.
Here is a shot I think worked out just OK, the others have a much better composition but key elements are either missing or out of focus.
