First time I've ever seen the entire bird capture....always in the water as you say.

Vertical dive, not completely sharp but very difficult to capture

Instead of loving things and using people, why not use things and love people? :-)

Beautiful bird, beautiful captures.
The little bird in the last frame looks like a missile!

I was working a hawk and this guy speeds out of one set of trees and beelines to another. I had 2.5 seconds to find him in the sky, let the camera lock
and then hammer. I got 5 shots that look very much like this-

Return from a "successful" hunt.

This young burrowing owl chick has been practicing his hunting skills by flying a short distance away from the nest to capture “preys” of his imagination, e.g. a loose feather, a small rock, etc. In this photo he was flying back to the nest with his captured “prey”, which happened to be a small piece of clay in this case.
