Love it Stanley. Could you elaborate a little on the specific Canon and lense/s used as I'm just getting into wildlife photography and the Canon SX 60 I have is decent, but it does not let me meter my shots as I would like. I'd almost bet, and I'm not a gambling man, that your Canon and lense probably cost more than one of my high end guitars. lol

How often are nighthawks seen flying during daytime? You certainly made the most of the opportunity. Lovely amount of detail of the exquisite patterning.
