Hobby

Here are a few shots of a hobby, a relatively small falcon renowned for its magnificent aerial displays.  The hobby’s prey generally consists of winged insects and small birds both of which are caught in flight.  Indeed, one of the shots below shows the hobby skilfully eating a dragonfly whilst in flight.  Considering the aerial ability and speed of this falcon the shots are possibly as good as it gets for me and my equipment.
