My most memorable Birds in Flight Photography Series of 2016 / 2017

Swift Tern dropping his breakfast - Woodbridge Island, Cape Town
After watching a swift tern executing a successful breakfast dive, I started tracking the bird to get a closer look - just to see him dropping his latest meal mid-air. Very much in reaction towards inevitable onslaught from the fast approaching king gull. Lucky escape for the fish, as it dropped back into the Milnerton lagoon.
