See Shalu, every once in a great while, you can learn something from an old geezer like me. :-P :lol: The trouble is, I've forgotten most of what I once knew. :mrgreen:

I can't believe the detail you got in this shot. It's honestly amazing. Very nicely done.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Great shot! Caught at the peak of action.

I have many attempts like this of poised terns. It is tough shooting. Just curious how many shots you took to get this one!

Thank you very much, Mike and Ed! Ed, I got many frames for the dive, it is not hard when I use A9 with Dot Sight :-P:lol: The main issue is I often get part of the wings clipped since it happens so far, I can't pan perfectly in sync with the bird. Here is a frame when it penetrated the water.

Bob...I really like your shots of the Roseate Spoonbill and the Black-bellied Whistling Duck. I especially like the Whistling duck shot, because I enjoy photographing waterfowl and raptors more than anything else. Nice work.
