Common Nighthawks And 500 Posts

This post is my 500th. I started the blog on June 6th of 2007, so it's almost a 2-fer as anniversaries go! I have had a blast! A BIG thanks to all who visit my little old blog!


Common Nighthawks, originally uploaded by Hannibals Animals.

While taking a break from work outside this morning at about 6:30 a.m., I see a nighthawk in pursuit of his prize. This chase lasted for a good hour, until they both disappeared onto a rooftop where they could have more privacy.

I just got my first night hawk pictures ever - at a grandson's ball game. They always seem to fly over baseball fields! And I KNOW how difficult it is to get a good shot of these guys - they are so darn flitty!!! You really got a great picture and with two - so neat!
Congrats on your 500th post and I sure do love to visit your blog and see what you're shooting :-)
