Arctic (?) Tern, hovering whilst looking for fish. Maldon, Essex


Nice sense of speed with the motion blur on the wings. I also like the dark background. Well done!

Very nice Petach.

A (probably juvenile) swallow, one of many feeding low over a cornfield yesterday. Very strong wind - at first I didn't think it would be worth trying (holding a big lens steady in a crosswind is pretty difficult), but the background was so lovely, I relented. They move so fast, you need a lot of patience, but also it was on the threshold of the focus limit, so I had to use full focus, which slows it down a fair bit. This one turned out okay though :) 500mm, f/4, 1/4000, ISO 320.

Excellent job scyrene.  They are very difficult and fast.  If you can get them when they head into the wind and control your lens you have the greatest chance for success IME.

Thanks! That's absolutely right - sometimes they will fly into a headwind and hang motionless for a moment or two.

Zone-tailed Hawk.  Not a rare bird over its distribution, which includes much of Latin America,  but pretty uncommon in the U.S.  I photographed this one in a remote canyon in the mountains of southern Arizona.

Great egret - 1D X +300 f/2.8 IS II + 2x III, handheld - I yanked it off the tripod while shooting an owl and caught this bird in the first light of the day with the sun just above the horizon.  An osprey with fish came a few minutes later but I wasn't fast enough!  f/6.3 1/2000s ISO 3200:

More than most, less than some
