it was very difficult to anticipate the flight path of these guys so i used my trusty 200-400, the ability to zoom in and out was very essential for this bird
A first class result!
You have one advantage over those of us who live farther north, we would love to have sunlight as bright as yours, even so late in the day.
But those guys fly in such an unpredictable way that they are very difficult to shoot and you have got everything right.
