Gulls and the D300

I finally had a chance to use the new Nikon D300 with birds in flight while making the journey from Victoria, BC to Port Angeles in Washington on the Coho ferry. All I can say is WOW! The new focus system is amazing in tracking and locking onto an object. I also noticed that the focus point seems to be the eye with most of the images, perhaps Nikon has programmed the camera to look for the eye when the point of focus is determined? Overall this is very impressive and I certainly look forward to more action photography in the future.
