These are hardly up to the quality I see here on a regular basis, but thought I would share as this little guy has proven to be very, very tough for me to capture in flight. Talk about here on second and gone the next. Then of course the captures I got while he was "kiting" he had his back to me. Oh well I am going to stay after them and try to get some better tries!!

Isn't that the truth. The only way to make that happen is wade in 7 foot of cold flowing river :)
