Hello Lars,
Impressive happening...
Same critique as in your previous shot..
Well done

Hi Lars again,
here too, you have it all, the picture is technically perfect and very interesting.

By the way: the bird I studied once (Savi's warbler) specializes in catching emerging dragonflies. It has no chance with the flying ones.

My best egards

  • Great
