Wow! Great job of freezing the action. The shadows in the photo really make it great.

Nice capture Bill. They look like a group dancing Dragonflies. It appears the light source was coming from different angles if you look at the shadows. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks,

The sun was almost directly overhead. This is one occasion where harsh lighting made the picture.

When I first looked at that, I thought those were toy dolls. Then I saw the shadows and said to myself, how in the h--- did he do that! Great capture! It looks like you caught every one of them off the ground.

Bill,

Fabulous job. Poetry in motion is the only phrase I can think of to describe this beautiful shot.

Aloha

Excellent capture, Bill. You must have seen this performance multiple times, no? I mean, the performers were up in the air for a second or two so youwould not have a chance to capture such a moment unless you knew what was coming up orwere watching the show through your camera's EVF/LCDwith you finger depressing the shutter releaseand the camera set to burst!
