  2. How unusual that she would look back over her shoulder while in flight (I assume she is hovering) ... it seems she was quite taken by you :) Beautiful, clear and unique shots, John ...

    1. Thanks Andrea! Yes, she was hovering. Not sure why she kept looking at me, probably wondering what I was doing!

    1. Thanks Roy! Shame she wasn't facing towards me, but the wind was in the wrong direction.

    1. Wonder what she was thinking? Probably 'I wish that idiot with the camera would bugger off!'

  8. That's what happens to me every time I try to photograph a bird - it flies off. But I never end up with such an excellent shot of a bird in flight as you have done. Great shot!!!

    Have a nice day.

    1. Thanks Derek! She was always ready to disappear if I got any closer and eventually she did!

  9. Gret flight shots John. In 1 & 3 it seems to be keeping a beady eye on you and what you are doing.
