I am always envious of good shots like these of Frigates. They are incredibly agile fliers (What else can catch a flying fish in midair?). My one big opportunity came and went after shooting what I thought was a full roll of film of these birds snatching off the surface fish we threw off the boat, only to find the tongue had slipped off the take-up spool -- I got nothing!

Thank you all...
Yes - I do like theses low angle captures as opposed to the ones looking up as theses high flying birds tend to locate themselves mostly:
