So the weather is getting warmer, and it's been a long time since I could hike in optimal conditions, so todays shots were in 55 degree weather with a bit of a breeze. A stronger wind makes for optimal flight shots. Why? When they surf the wind, they sort of hang there in the headwind, giving you a bit more trigger time. The skies were gorgeous too!
Check out that bulge in it's belly. Is that a tumor? (Unlaid eggs would bulge behind the legs.)
It's hard enough to get a close up flight shot of killdeer, let alone 2 in focus. Skill? Sure, I was tracking the one, when the other flew into frame. Luck? Definately!
