Aerial Ballet

By Kaxxie
Hi everyone

Hereís another one from Sunday when I eventually remembered that my lens could actually move off the 70mm setting and could zoom to 300mm! 🤦🏼‍♀️

Thank you all for your votes and kind comments on yesterdayís gull image and to
Sue (sue118) for the precious UA. Willie (Banehawi) your mod was fabulous. Thank you. I must have missed your comment about getting off the 300mm. Unfortunately I forgot I could do anything other than 70mm on Sunday. 😂😂😂 I will get there.

Iíve spent the afternoon in Bushy Park kestrel hunting. I found the tree, thanks Debs. Apparently the female was on the nest and the male had been in and out but not while I was there! I saw it swoop over the lake but it was too high to get a shot. A very large group of young deer came past us though so hopefully Iíve got something I can use. 😉

Take care

Super pose caught, Karen, nice to take one almost full frame with your 300mm. Aerial angels they are.

A good capture, Karen, catching the bird in mid-air, especially the way its wings have been caught - indeed an aerial ballet!!
