Absolutely stunning shot. I was at Isle of May last week so am well aware of how fast these little blighters are!

You did good!

I was there on Saturday. Couldn't catch them in flight as focus appeared to take too long to lock on so I admire this expertly captured image, Geoffrey. Green with envy.

Thanks everyone Smile
Thanks Alun for your User Award Smile I was also on Skomer Saturday, we may have been standing side by side without even realising it, I went over on the first boat.
If it's any consolation, it was extremely difficult to lock focus that day, I got some but it was more luck than skill, against the sky or sea it was ok but against the grass it was hit and miss.

Geoff.
