This is a lesson learned of what not to do when taking photos of birds:  1) take the shot when the birds are flying away from you, 2) shoot at a slow shutter speed, min of 1/1000 is needed, 3) shoot at a large DOF, the birds are the subject … not the clouds or ocean, 4) have the wrong lens to get acceptable detail of the birds.  I can go on and on, but the most important thing is to be prepared and have the appropriate camera settings dialed in before taking the shot.  Oh well …
