Two beauties, Manny! I especially like the close-up shot. Really nice sharpness and detail.

Thank you for the kind comments Mike, much appreciated!

I follow this but all this fast action isn't something I've really tried - well I have but blue sky is so easy to take I gave up :-P

Anyway, thrilled to have some local Plovers actually produce youngsters. First for a few years. I think the Magpies discouraged it previously.
I wandered up the drive to try and get some photos. There are 3 very tiny bundles.
No joy as they went to ground and parents took to the air. Interestingly they flew off into the next paddock landed and just wandered about.
Eventually they decided I wasn't going anywhere so did a few flights over me with all bared.

With no sign of juniors I decided to leave them to it and wait my turn. Trouble is those youngsters grow quickly

Whiskered tern at Fogg Dam looking for an evening feed in the last few rays of the day. I was trying to get one of them in a dive, which they were doing repeatedly, but they were way too quick for me.

I agree, they are very fast. I have plenty of spray and pray shots including some good shots but getting the shot I want is near impossible. Still, it is fun to try.

These are two great flight images, Richard! Birds coming directly at the camera, are often pretty tough shots to make.

Two terrific flight captures, Paul! I especially like the first one with it's wings spread forward and wide open.

This is lovely and interesting after seeing my Robin and the way they vary across the nations.
Outstretched wings taken from below certainly add appeal not otherwise had.
