Anyone wants a spider ?
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|African Hopoe kept on bringing delicious meals to her chicks regularly, with a very precise timing, appr. one spider at every 15-20 minutes. All I have to do was to wait until the next delivery and try to track this fast action. As I was using ProviaF at 100 ISO rate and light conditions were quite unfavourable, using fill-in flash at about 15 meters was my only chance to get this picture. Crop is very close to original slide. I have to admit that I spent almost a roll to get this action right.|

Really good post - action, clarity, sharpness in the ebak - excellent work. Tim
Just slightly over exposed, and maybe a little cool (blue) in colour, but good timing and I like the movement in the wings.
Çok güzel bir kare.
İnanılmaz zor bir fotograf çekmişsiniz.Tebrikler,Ellerinize sağlık.

what a beautiful moment. My congratulations
Brilliant shot.It's clear, sharp and good composition.
I like this a lot. Thanks for sharing.
Very cool and strange looking bird Alptekin! Is that a spider I see in its beak?? A bird in-flight with spider is worth an automatic 20 points!!!! High degree of difficulty here..Very well done!
