Default Dragon in Flight

Effort pays off. This was the only useable shot after a couple of hours in a field.

D30, 300mm+1.4TC, manual focus, f8, 1/1250s

Default Nabbed him!

Those are *so* hard to catch in flight. Congratulations... I've tried it a number of times and have never caught a satisfactory image. Jealousy abounds

Default Thanks

Ron and Brooks...thanks for the comments. It's funny how much even a so-so photo can mean to me simply because of the effort I know I put into it.
I would have loved to have been able to shoot faster and get the dragon sharper...but, c'est la vie. Next time!

Wow! Definitely a keeper - looks like a plane coming in for a landing.
