juvenile Hobby antics

after 25 years of watching breeding Hobbies it is still amazing to see juveniles that 11 days before could hardly land in a tree catching small airborne insects and intercepting butterflies on the wing albeit with mixed success; the hot and sunny weather has been ideal for post fledging juvs but makes it almost impossible to get a sharp image at more than 20m -- Peacocks and whites were flying up to 100m up today and making ideal targets for the practicing Hobbies; the aerobatics that these birds perform so soon after leaving the nest is awe inspiring
