My first one in flight. The conditions were perfect. I can't ask for anything better than blue cloudy skies. I got a lot of throwaways on this one. my cyber garbage can is full. :p

These are both really nice, pcs. Was this one trying to distract you from it's nesting site? Our killdeer will do that anytime I get too near it's nest on the ground.

What a cool shot, Shalu!! It had to be kinda tough to keep your camera on him during the power dive. :-)

Thank you so much Mike!

Yes, it's the same here, I was on a bicycle path through an industrial area where there are a few pieces wet grassland which are not yet in use and somewhere in there they have nests. When you walk/cycle there they keep circling around you, ideal photo opportunities!

Congrats Mike! Just be sure to check that trash can thoroughly before you dump it. Lol...

It's a wonderful feeling to capture BE images like that - to me, at least. :)

Well done on the first but that kind off surprises me in as much as I thought, I know that's reckless, that they were quite common over there, mainly from the number of photos we see posted on here. Whatever, I'm envious as it's not something I'll ever see flying round my neck of the woods!

Beautiful shot - the way they dart around, they are very tough to catch in flight. Well done.
