Size DOES matter …

West Sussex, 10 September 2012 – Part 1

I managed to watch it for about an hour, during which time it hawked dragonflies over the reed beds below its vantage point in a large ash nearby. With strong winds and its perch about 100 metres away, my little Lumix really wasn’t up to the job; though I gave it a go (record shot below) ...

This really was a case of size DOES matter …
