Great capture. How you catch one of these in flight I don't know
they are too fast for me Smile

Thanks Mike
IMHO there are three tricks to cope with with this kind of shots: anticipation, patience, rapidity. DF are a bit more tricky to capture cause their hovering is short an pretty unpredictable. I use shutter priority mode (1/500 or faster) with manual focusing. The faster the aperture the sharper the the result, as you can guess. Try it, .. you'll see, it's fascinating. Good luck.

Cheers,

nuri

Oh, such a difficult subject to capture properly, but here you have done a wonderful job. It is a really fine image. Print it, hang it on the wall.

simply brilliant! although minor note to above - newbies might get a little confused by the term 'faster aperture'
