Not at night, I was shooting on manual, luckily. I had my settings right for the sunlit area and this one flew in front of my neighbours garage which was in total shadow, but the bird was still in the sunlight. \O
Sometimes it’s not until you don’t see what you want to see, that you truly open your eyes.

Keep your eyes (and ears - their call is quite distinctive) open, they do occur in Randburg area - we used to live on a plot near Kya Sands and we had them nesting there. Not sure if we've had them in our garden since we moved to suburbia - must ask the SO.

Great shot Sprocky, especially considering the speed and unpredictability of their flight \O
Hunting cannot be considered a sport as all contestants in a sport should know they are playing the game!
