Very nice photo. Nice action, focus looks just about perfect.

You guys kill me with these flight shots. I just can't seem to master it.

Thanks woodmeister & zoomn.

Zoomn - It is all practice. I must have taken 150 shots that day. Lots of them were bad. The wind was flowing from me towards the birds which made it easier. I studied how they fly and then just followed them with the lens.

Beautiful flight shot, just lovely. Keep em coming, bobby. They can't get much better than this. Your color saturation and exposure is about as good as it gets.

This is a pretty bird and I got some shots of one fishing last weekend, just haven't gotten around to processing. It was hilarious watching this thing try to catch a fish, pouncing on the water, endlessly, over and over, until it disappeared from sight over a hill. They are really not the best fishermen, but they are persistent, and persistence always pays off. About 5 minutes later if flew overhead, flapping gleefully, fish in mouth, on it's way to lunch.

This is a Forster's Tern, but that title was probably just a type-o.
