Way to get one of these perpetually and erratically moving darts, Mike! Talk about a test of eye-hand coordination!

Thank you so much, Steve! You're right, they are "perpetually and erratically moving darts," however "eye-hand coordination" had nothing to do with it for me. The camera accidently slipped out of my hands, and when I grabbed for it, I accidently hit the shutter button. Low and behold, I was astounded to see that nice image starring up at me from my viewing screen.:eek: Since then, I've been tossing my camera up in the air on these swallow shots with absolutely no luck at all.:lol:


LD, or Mike
Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Thanks for that tip, Mike! I'll be sure to try it. ;-)a
