I've actually been out shooting quite a lot the last week. I've also loaded my printer with canvas on a roll which is a new and exciting experience.
The Terns are fast birds but I managed to get a couple of shots of one hunting the other day. Unfortunately I did not get a shot when it dove into the water.

I find these quite impressive as, if I so much as look at a Grackle, it's off like a shot. I rarely have time to bring my camera up to shooting position.
Thank you, Dave.
There are two tricks that I use. One is to park myself on a stool, near the point of a lot of historical action. These shots were around a field of cattails, infested with blackbirds, such as grackles and red-winged blackbirds. The other trick is to raise my rig slowly.
