This is an indigenous bird of New Zealand notable for its arial acrobatics. It catches small insect on the wing. In fact the insects are visible on close inspection of this shot. I generally use 1/3,200s shutter speed to catch it. The wasteful expense of my initial attempts to photograph it on film was what eventually persuaded me to go digital.

Difficult subject I would have cropped it tighter to bring the bird into closer focus xx
