Pam, I caught this one napping early in the morning in an aspen grove beside the reservoir. You're right, once they're flying, I have found it almost impossible.

This shot was interesting because with all the foliage that was in the way, I actually switched to manual focus to get the bird sharp....otherwise the autofocus just went nuts and couldn't decide what to pick.

Thanks for all the positive comments!

Well done. This isn't easy. Sometimes manual is the only way to go.
