Setting the flight path

Photographing a bird in flight is a waiting game. Check the wind direction, watch for signs of restlessness in a previously still bird, and wait with finger on the shutter and the camera focussed in continuous shooting mode. When the bird is ready to take off, the shot will come. I took this Lanner Falcon in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
