Very neat to see both the top and the bottom of them and these shots, Bob. Very nice!

Very nice Bob, like the one with the Anole. I look forward to seeing them myself, little early here. I'm hoping to make it down there next month, I'll keep my eyes open for them.

thanks for looking and commenting! these guys cover lots of ground while hunting and always eat on the wing- fascinating to watch hard to get close to

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
