Charadriiformes: Charadridae, Charadrius vociferus (Killdeer)

Caught in flight and blown up. ISO of 1000 in reduced evening light made the photo noisy. A rather fast flying bird and difficult to get close to unless they are faining the "broken wing" behavior to lure would be predators away from their nest.

Hi Michael.
Wonderful in-flight picture, Especially I like fine smooth BG. It underlines the sharpness and details of the flying bird. Timing is excellent. My kind regards and TFS.
