No Luck

I tried to get a flight shot, I really tried. That was my goal when I left home today to spend an hour among the flycatchers. But no luck this time.

Still, it was totally worth it. Not just for the beautiful European Pied Flycatcher in the middle shot posing for me, but also for the cute Spotted Flycatcher with that messy clump of feathers in the right wing (no idea how that may have happened). I love these guys.

Flight shots are difficult, they take hours and hours and tons of patience! Still, I'd say your time was more than well spent, these are incredibly beautiful shots!

I love those messy feathers.

Thank you, Caine! My time would have been well spent anyway. Even just watching and listening to them for a while is more than worth it, it's very relaxing. But of course I'm very pleased with these!

Thanks, Twiglet.

Thanks, Anon.

Thank you, swamprose. It is!
