A great shot and well taken. Amazing birds and so hard to capture in focus and in frame.

Thank you all. I must say having the ovf1 mounted on the hotshot made tracking a lot easier. Then it was just a case of hoping one would come into the focus plane I had set. Several hundred shots and an hour and a half later, I was rewarded. Guess we gotta make the most of the advantages of digital...😊
