You nailed it! That apex predator is hard to capture in flight. Woot!

Thanks! They tend to fly the same patterns, so if you watch for long enough you can work out where to wait. In this case I sat for half an hour on one side of the pond and got a couple of not very good shots, then moved to the other side, found a spot where they were hovering briefly - resting? - and got lots of keepers. At 15 fps, a burst of 6 - 7 shots was giving me 70-80% in focus. I am constantly amazed at how good the R6/70-200 f4 combo is at nailing focus on small targets like these.
