Catch of the day

Wish light had been more favorable, but still I am pleased with this one.

Thanks for looking,
Tord

That is a fine catch by the tern and the photographer. Excellent work Tord.

Re: Catch of the day

I wonder if that's going to get stuffed down a youngsters throat?

No, the method I use is to look for a candidate, pan and shoot a sequence while trying to track if/when the action starts to take place. Quite often the first picture or two gets incorrectly framed this way due to reaction time.

Still have to put that "Capture Pro" feature at test.

Re: Catch of the day

As you say, the lighting wasn't perfect - when is it ever? - but I found it held my interest longer as I hed to look closer to see 'the catch.'
