Karen,

Just gorgeous. The last one is fantastic.

I saw a few of these, and all of them flew away from me

Beautiful set. I prefer these over the other thread because of the nicer backgrounds and the head on flight. The last one is the clear winner for me.

karen,nicely done
these are one of the most difficult shots to take, since they almost always fly away from you and not at you

Sometimes I would take 50-75 shots hoping the bird would fly! Most of the time, I just got "birds on a stick"!

Agreed! They almost always fly away from you. So I was very happy to get this set of flight shots.
