Impressive, Annette, well-captured. I'd be tempted to place the bird in the top right corner of the composition but that's just me... Grin

Trying to catch birds in flight was a common thing for me when I was younger, the females were always fleeing from me!Sad

Excellent first efforts, Annette. Like the concentration in v1. He's defo got his eye on something.

Your persistence paid off with two fine images.
Now you'll truly appreciate other bird images.
This species will probably cause a stir amongst the bird photographers.
