Great inflight capture, Jeff. I have NEVER accomplished one--but the pesky GBH has now returned to our pond (that he DECIMATED last year). Perhaps I can succeed at capturing him in flight when I scream and jump up and down "in his face!" [laughing] #10088416

Great in-flight capture here, Jeff! I want to thank you for your frequent comments in my photos. I am an oral surgeon and I work at a big hospital, so I don't have as much chance to comment as I wish, but I do enjoy your work a lot.
Thanks again for your latest comment on my photo "Clouds and Fire". Actually I wish I had used a slow shutter because the water looks too harsh. The sun was going down quickly and my tripod was not at hand... you know how it is.
Best regards, Raymond #10102850
