Hence the 1/400th..... for a 100mm lens....

And thanks everyone for the comments....
go4IT... apparently, that third eye allows it to position accurately....
I have seen one leave the 3/4" slot in the trap without moving left or right, forwards or backwards.... it just rose slowly upward and flew off...
and I didn't think to switch to video!! I was too mesmerised!!
Never be afraid to talk about your techniques...

the same camera, lens and scene...
