A little bit of in-flight practice

  • When the bird on a branch seems to be all too easy to photograph, you start thinking about more in-flight shots.  Eventually however, masochism rears its head and you decide it's time to flex the hardware with some high frame rate, fast autofocus action at the pond.

    This is what we're after...

    The colourful Migrant Hawkers are particularly attractive, so here we go....

    Um, blast - bum shots again!  Fascinating from a mechanics perspective, seeing the details of the wing joints, but it'd be nicer from the front!

    Yay!

    You do have to keep your eyes open though, don't get too carried away with the Dragons - you might miss this little one :-)

  • That little water vole looks like the cat who got all the cream :). Nice dragon shots too.

  • Stunning images WJ and agree with Mrs T as that vole definitely has a contented look on its face   lol
