Looks like it all worked out for you Wendell! By the way I really like the last two shots especially the capture.

#3 is by far the hardest to get - either you were in burst mode on a skimming bird or you have an extremelyfast finger on the trigger! The reflections are great - no wind at all to disturb the surface. As you say, they are amazing birds.

1) Thanks again for your help, Kent. Confession: I thought I might have a "fish shot" but wasn't sure until I downloaded the image to my computer.

2) I'm trying to equal your work, Hung . . .

3) And yes, Penolta, I was in burst mode. Many shots were taken and many more deleted, as you've no doubt guessed -- far too many were not sharp, I'm afraid.
