Birds of Flights of Wonder at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

The Flights of Wonder show in Disney’s Animal Kingdom features many species of birds found throughout the world. Many are shown flying around the stage and audience.

The best way to photograph this show is with a fast shutter speed. I set my camera to Shutter Priority mode with the shutter at 1/1000th of a second and changed Auto Focus (AF) to Continuous.
