Into a Dive

By moiral
Afternoon all. This set of shots is of the Gyr-Saker coming into a dive. The bird was so fast, I did not even see this sequence in the dive with the naked eye. Am surprised that I captured it on camera. The shots are in sequence of her dive. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload. Feeling a bit better today Grin.

Guess you needed that very fast shutter speed to capture the bird in dive mode, Moira: a fine set in every way.

What a super sequence you have captured here! Very well done! I would have missed it completely!!!!

Very impressive sequence Moira, not easy at all, I know how difficult it is to keep a person in the frame, the bird moves considerably faster and can change direction faster too.

Took me a little while to realise it was flying upside-down.

Great sequence
