Wow what a fantastic capture. It is hard enough to capture a shot of this bird and you managed to get one in flight. Well done.

Thank you Carol. I went and looked at your flickr stream and that is quite a compliment coming from someone as talented as you :-)

Some of the best Common nighthawk shots I've ever seen.

Really nice; hell of a set to catch one of these on the wing. Not a common, or easy, thing to do

Thank you George! I took these with my 1DmkIII and a 100-400L.

Thanks for the reply!

Nice shot of a bird that is very difficult to photograph. They never move the way you think they're going to go.

Thank you all for the compliments! I knew I always liked these images but didn't realize it was so hard to capture these little birds. This one hung around for quite some time and was quite the attention hog :-)

Fantastic shots. As mentioned these birds don't offer many opportunities. I've photographed one in flight at a distance but it's nowhere near as nice as yours. I agree with Jake, these are the nicest Nighthawks shots I've seen posted here.
