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.

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'
