Siskin in flight

These are the most quarrelsome small birds I've come across - they are always scrapping with each other.

I used a different technique to my usual for these shots, shutter priority on 1/4000 sec manual focus, pre focused on an area where I expected the birds to fly through and fast repeat shooting. (about 1 in 100 shots useable!)
