When we were at the Eider Barrage last month there was lots of spectacle going on. The trents were chasing each other through the sunset sky, flying the wildest maneuvers. It’s great to watch them make their fast changes of direction and sudden attacks, but much harder to get it on the camera chip. These two were flying right in front of us for a while, and I was lucky.

Photo data: Pentax K20D, 50-200 mm lens at 200 mm (and cropped in), f8, 1/800 second and ISO 800.
