Busy little beaver it was, fishing non-stop and with an estimated 75% success rate (I'm surprised it could even lift off by the end of the episide). I got wonderful pre-strike shots, post-strike shots, fish-in-beaks shots and 6 or 7 "strike" shots. The only strike shot that is half-ways decent appears next (of course a fly-away and not a fly-towards or even a fly-across)

Here is an example of one of the "good" strike that got away from me.

I was punished for my inattention to the details of camera operation. DON'T let it happen to you.

Ouch Nick. I really like that first shot, though. Happens to me too - like the ISO 1000 beaver I posted. Like I say, sometimes you take great photos. And sometimes you have fun trying. I don't even have a photo of a tri-color yet, so you're doing better than me!

They are fun to watch dancing all over the place. The snowy and the redish heron do it as well.

Nice shots.
