SX50, The Dragon Parade

Excuse the image quality,when going for this specific image capture you take what get and when you get it. They don't hang around and pose,they are intent on feeding their babies quickly as other's will steal the dragons from them for their babies. The technique is to have the camera set on auto and 60-70X and wait at the ready.You can see the adult birds coming with a kill but you don't know which nest they are heading for.The average wait time for a successful shot is about an hour.I cleaned them up as best I could with PSE11 & LR5.

My colony is fledging daily and will probably be gone except for two nests in 2 - 3 more weeks.
