Nightjars in natural light

or actually no light really -- ISO 6400 on the 1D4 with the Canon 300 2.8 II at pretty slow shutter speeds -- now if the 1DX had arrived then they would all be perfect --

Most pictures of flying Nightjars are obviously illuminated with flash but a) I am not great on flash and b) I like to try and show the bird how you usually see it - whether that succeeds or not is I guess personal taste

I really like the last one (10) - plumage pattern and white markings look striking and no need for flash. BTW. down in my patch of Kent Nightjars have all but dissappeared in recent years, hope yours are fairing better.

All great shots as always!
