On the same day as the otter shots I spent a similar if not longer length of time trying to get some flight shots.

Thanks Hayward.

I think the 2nd one is a rather unusual moment, and was quite surprised when I saw it !!!

I love all these shots.

1 and 3 get my vote, taking off and coming in to land.

The photos are very fine, your effort really paid off.

But they make me jealous. If I want to see a kea I have to go to Germany, to Vogelpark Walsrode. You have them around the corner. Can't someone convince my boss she has to send me to NZ for some reason??

Thank you Darren, Kjell, Roger and Tom.

One thing I've learned from the otters and bird shots is that fur is more forgiving at the editing stage than feathers !!! LOL.
