Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in Flight

Scissor tail hovers on air while searching for insects. If you locate one perches low on glassy field, wait patiently, that’s most effective way of capturing it in flight. I drove all over village creek attempted to get this flycatcher on air, and years of doing that, finally got lucky. I landed more than a few keepers that day.
