  2. Nice shooting, with the launch shot being very nicely done.
     
  3. Thank you Louis, capturing these little rockets in BIF mode is a real challenge.
     
  4. Nice shots of that Devil Bird. I have been going for walks lately to some nearby ponds and have been tracking these little buggers. Not easy for sure.
     
  5. It's all about patience.
