Great catch, Linda. I find that they will sometimes perch for several minutes at a time ... but they certainly are very difficult to catch in flight.

I didn't see one that perched for that long. It was hard I shot and shot just to get one or two. I would love to find the lazy ones! :)

Great capture! Believe me, they are quick and if I saw one sit for more than 5 seconds, I would think they were sick! About 10 were busy darting in and out at each other!

Fantastic Linda, I only got a few too at that shoot!
