I took this a few years ago after finding this male in a small unique spot. He was very cooperative and I was fortunate to get a few nice take-off and landing shots as I sat with him for a few hours each outing.
I like the puff of dust coming from the feet as he launches after a Japaneese Beatle.

Thanks as always for looking and for your input.  I appreciate it.
