8-30-17 I posted about the Common Nighthawks over my yard. Out of 187 shots these are the best 2. Gauging the height 120-150ft of a Maple Tree they were 150-200 ft. above the tree, hand held 400mm, 2 kinks in my neck. They flew over singly or strung out group of 5. Several kited overhead snatching big bugs and Dragonflies and held them flying off south. Pretty impressive sight!
