    Hi Ben:

    Nice series! I love shots of birds in flight and after attempting them myself, I have a deeper appreciation/admiration for those that do this type of photography. I love the action you captured in the last image......it is a unique perspective and nicely captured.

    Ben,

    Excellent series. These guys are very difficult to get in flight. You did good. :wink:
     
  12. Good series of shots BF. Always nice when you can get flying bird images. One of these days I will get around to trying that myself.
     
  13. Nice series of flight shots, Ben! That second one in particular is super sharp!

    I've never seen one of these around here, but if my field guide is correct they may spread into this area for short periods of time. I'll have to keep a lookout.

    Afternoon Frank
    Boy you aren't kidding like my friend Harry says, "Birds are evil creatures". I see em I stalk em to shooting distance, so far so good, then I start to put my camera in position and it's usually adios amigo !! :mad:  I'm left with a Butt shot !!!! :frown:

    But oh do I enjoy the process :biggrin: and the occasional success :wink:
