you need high sutter speed for this size of birds at least 1/640 sec. for smaller much faster , thats why (if light outside is not good) you need bright lens, high iso and of course camera with good AF ,made this image with very nice equipment I think this is most important to have good results .There is not a talent or some special skills , you need just good camera and lens , lot of patience and good spot for flying birds exif of this image is something like : 1/2000 sec. ISO 640 F4 Canon 1D Mark 4 Canon 400 f2.8 USM IS first version AF servo
I think, I saw that bird in "our" forest, when I walked with my wolf-dog. But not for sure, because bird was far away... But Your photo i awesome! I wish I could take similiar pictures like this... But it's only a dream
