Sulphur-crested Cockatoos in action

Here are several cockatoo photos from yesterday. They trigger mixed emotions in me. On one hand I realize that some of them are quite OK, or even good; on the other I feel frustrated, because my camera is not capable of delivering the quality that I want. AF is always hit or miss, fast shutter speeds result in certain softness and if the object is more than 3 meters away AF is very rarely precise.

Now when I wrote all this, I think frustration dominates. I feel that I have missed a great photographic opportunity, because I was limited by my equipment...
