Well shot Weja, a very skittish bird not easy to get close to.

Two difficult shots, at least for my limited BIF experience.

Nice! I do hate it when they don't cooperate and you only get a back shot!

Here is one of mine .. I took it about 40km offshore in the Pacific Ocean from Newport, Oregon. A long tailed jaeger (Stercorarius longicaudus), also known as a long tailed skua outside North America.

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.

Thank you ! Depending on the camera and your experience, you get a lot of missed shots though

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
