BIF is hard to do.... Insects in flight is even harder... but a bird in flight chasing an insect!!!!! WOW!!!! That has to be the hardest shot to take that I have seen in the forum. congratulations! Well done!

What bird is this?

It's a Green Heron

Agree. BTW, when asking what type of bird it is, it helps to say where you took it.....
The best camera is the one in your hands

Eastern Spine Bill feeding in the correas. I spied him this morning, making his way through the correa bush in my back garden. So, with 15min to spare, I waited for a repeat performance. Sure enough, he popped back :)

A fast little mover (think humming bird), so from 4m away, I just held the button down until the memory buffer filled :)

Thanks rpt. I nearly didn't go out and take them, thinking, "....there's time later in the day....". But I'm glad I did :)

Well, you obviously did not take Ellen Degeneres' advise - she says "procrastinate now!"  ;D

Serendipidy, maybe it's better not to know where the shots were taken  ;)  Many wonderful shots - thanks to all!

Up here getting any kind of black crowned night heron shot is a feat, so here's my first, as mediocre as it is!

6D 300 X1.4  640th  F18  ISO 2500  A pond 5 minutes from my country home near Ardrossan, Alberta, Can.

And a dear robin so faithfully tending to duty, can't you just feel the love?  In my crab apple tree.

6D 300 X1.4  640th  F4  ISO 4000
