A more useful than attractive image
Lens: DAF 150-450+hd 1.4 Camera: K3 Photo Location: Southern ca. ISO: 125 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F16

While walking back to the parking lot I heard the familiar nyarpp of a caspian tern flying overhead . I managed to get three frames as the 5 birds darted haphazardly along the aqueduct . A biologist friend urged me to post with a clearing house for tagged birds . This experience convinced me to get a K-3II with its gps features and improved AF.

That's a great shot of the leg band. It demonstrates a very useful aspect of wildlife photography, even if it is more a matter of luck when it happens.

Yes luck certainly was the deciding factor in making this image .Not finding the tag on a dead bird is a plus .
