Learned a great deal today! Catching a bird in flight is an exercise in obsessive persistence, a great lens, fortuitous focusing and a lot of luck. Thus, 612 pictures later, we have this shot. Many more on Flickr, but this was the one I liked the best. It was what this day was all about for the birds. getting a meal. They seemed pleasantly frantic around the feeders in blizzard conditions making me stand at the window for longer than I should have.
