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

Two very well-timed flight captures, Annette. My personal preference is V2 SmileSmile

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.

Two stunning inflight captures superbly well time, for me image showing the bird in hover is the stronger.

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.

V1 is an excellent attempt, I'm sure you'll make a vast improvement with practice. I haven't managed a decent inflight shot of any bird yet
