    My intention was to get some of these guys in flight as I'll pretty much try any kind of photography and you don't see these guys in our area (in my backyard specifically) all that often so I rushed inside and grabbed the camera and got these.

    1) Warming up

    Finally the moment I was waiting for was for them to fly off so I could try a few inflight shots and I find that I had the camera in S mode instead of CH and so all I got was the first shot before they were to far away to be worth trying any more. Had fun though. :biggrin:
