The last time that I took a shot like this was several years ago and I took a bunch to get a couple of keepers.Yesterday I took 3 shots and got this one.Some times it's great to get lucky.These guys are good.They won't even nip your finger when they snatch the cracker.--charliezap

Thanks guys.All you have to do is turn your back to the wind and these guys will hover into the wind and work their way to the cracker.They really ride the wind currents.I have the camera set to burst mode and when they are about to feed I hit the button and hope for the best.--Charliezap

Great 3D effect Charlie. Some retirees have all the time in the world to play around like that. Good job.
