These two Willets spend their days and nights planning different ways of harrasing me.

I finally took a shotgun to the beach and ended the problem the good old fashioned way. True, I was arrested because some fanatics turned me into the police - But it was worth it! :ak47:

:lol: They were dive bombing me! I had plenty of opportunity.

They became a little more cautious when Chato shot ten feet in the air and actully got a paw on one. He wouldn't hurt them, and regards the whole thing as a game - which they certainly don't...:evil:

I was only about forty feet from the bird.

800mm, f10. It's a Swarovski spotting scope with a camera adapter. By shooting at ISO 800, I can get up to 1/1000, which is what this was shot at.

Great angle and lighting on the 3rd, Dave - in-flight shots have to be the most rewarding cause they are the most challenging.
