Pretty picture. I need to practice on flight pictures.

You did a great job of capturing the tern in flight. I wish I could do that.

I love how you caught him with the wings down in flight - lovely!!
P.S. I think you said your grandson is due this spring? I will need to find a birding festival later summer or early fall - I'd love to rally some birdy bloggers to go and meet there! Just have to find a good central spot. More on this later.

New bird to me! What a beautiful photo! Thank you :)

Perfect photo. Glad to hear your Dad is improving.

That is such a good shot! I have yet to learn to caputure birds in the air with any clarity. I can't focus fast enough and lose them as I try to follow them, while fiddling with the camera. Some day. It is so nice to see really good photos on other blogs like yours!

Great shot Leedra!

This is a new bird for me. Flight shots are not easy but when it all comes together they are really hard to beat.

Leedra,
Just beautiful, as usual! You captured the shot at just the right time.....it must be so hard to do that.

Rose said...

Awesome capture!
