I can't help but like this one, Andrew. Very nicely captured.

re: Diving Birds,

The Blue Footed Booby, a very close, slightly smaller relative of the Gannet, belies it's comical nature that it presents when nesting on land, as it takes to the air it becomes another artist, with extreme agility and grace.

I noticed the common terns seemed to manage multiple fish and the sandwich terns only ever a single fish. Beak design??

Dynamite shots, Lester. It's amazing how a tern can grab, and hold so many little fish in one dive.

All hummingbirds, all the time... I'll be sick of them before they leave and then wish they were back a few weeks later. :-)

Oh my goodness, Shalu. Those two shots blow me away!! How in the world does that bird manage to get those lunkers air-born? Excellent job of shooting.

Thank you very much, Mike! The tern did all the hard work, but in the end, the gull ate the fruit of labor, as it happens very often.

You really caught the feel of the struggle there, shalu.

Thank you, Jack!

I keep trying to get a kingfisher shot like yours...so far, unsuccessful. That's really a nice one.

For sure you will get it, It is really hard but luck got to do with it :)
