We Have Lift-off!
I have feeling I took these shots in one-shot AF mode. I am never ready for flying birds! I was thrilled to get some shots of these little guys flying off.
I particularly like seeing the feet. They have eluded me up until now but I've got a few shots lately (some nesting ones yet to come) and they are very interesting. Their webs are sort of contoured to each toe rather than stretching completely toe to toe as in most web-footed birds. It makes them look very cute in my opinion.
