Believe it or not there were only about 12 successful dives in 4 mornings.

The benefits of a motor drive and getting between 4 and 8 shots from each lift out of the water - though not all are sharp.

Beautiful shot but agree we you and some of the comments that it would have been better with a faster shutter speed to freeze the wing tips but more importantly those water drops. An extremely difficult shot to capture though and my congratulations go out to you.

If I could capture an image of this quality I would certainly be a happy man.

Thanks all.

Personally Ian I prefer movement in the wing tips as otherwise the bird look like a cut out. You'll notice that very few of my inflight shots don't have movement in the wings.

I am no authority on this sort of image but IMHO this is a top shot, perfectly timed and I feel you have the technique for this sort of shot down to a "T".

Terrific capture. The 'right' frame turned out to be sharp. SmileSmileSmile
