Yes, I admit it! I'm now hooked on these awesome birds. The Chief warned me about this type of addiction!!
As I had been told by Ken, Jack and a few others, hard targets..... NO LIE !!

I had my 80D with the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II.
1/3200th, f/8, auto ISO in full bright sunshine.
10am and shooting over the shallow waters of Sooke Harbour.

The last shot was the day we left, I tried different settings. Better!

If there's advice on how to better shoot these little speedsters, I'm all ears.

Thank you, Jack! They're really fun to watch with some seemingly playful behaviors!

Longer lens, Rob! That's the easy answer! Not always easy to do!! But well done under the circumstances!

They are tough to get close enough to.

I don’t have kind words for these little s—ts. They always laugh at me as they fly away. Long lenses and high shutter speeds are a must, as well as luck.

Will do Ken! I’ve delved through about 3/4 of my images from the 5 days I had at the cabin. May just be a few more keepers by the time I get through the rest. Thanks for the compliments!
