I snapped a half dozen photos of this large blackbird as it hovered in place, then descended gradually behind the bush. It’s amazing how the bird can literally hover since there was a nice northwest breeze blowing. The other three photos were way out of focus. I use manual focus, the Nikkor 24/200mm lens doesn’t focus as fast as I’d like.
The middle photo shows his landing gear deployed for touchdown! 😂❤️
