Camera equipment is developing all the time and I am happy to take advantage. Quicker focus, tracking and the ability to take lots of images in a scattergun approach to get a result are all on the table.
I was by the river and watching the Sand Martins flying around. I guessed that they were feeding but I could not see any prey.
I decided to have a go and banged away with motor drive, frame after frame. Back at base there was much to throw away but I struck lucky with this images. Not only was the Sand Martin in reasonable focus but I could also see a fly just ahead. No doubt it was about to be eaten.
