    This beauty flew towards me to enjoy her meal on an overgrown bank. Never been so close before. D7200 with 300mm f/4 AF-S and 1.4 TC.

    That's a great shot
     
  11. Very difficult little birds to shoot. Very timid and fast moving. Excellent.

    Thank you Karen, Matt and Rick for your comments. In this case Rick, it was pure dumb luck. My keeper rate with birds, especially in-flight, is poor indeed.
