Ken, What a stunning piece of ART! Perfect timing as always! Great detail! Instant favorite! And such an appropriate title!
Oh yes, really like your new profile photo!
Thanks, dear! For both compliments. I decided to shoot myself in the face for a new look. The cats were my witnesses…thought daddy was crazy. I’ve been practicing hard at the swallow stream using a new teleconverter, a 1.7. This shot happened when the little guy fluttered back to pick up the mayfly and gave me a split second of hesitation. Even so, getting focus on the little birds is tough. And I won’t use the shot if the background colors aren’t compatible. They sure give me a workout!
Awesome catch… the both of you!
Great shot!30 August 2010 (one image per day)
