37/365 in flight

P1640141

This little penguin is one of a collection of little toys known affectionately around here as "the boingers".  After a long night with an ailing child, I didn't have much energy this afternoon, so I sat by the window and tried like crazy to catch him in flight.  It took awhile, but I did it!

Unreal!! I love that jumping shot!

It cracks me up to think of you sitting there making this little guy jump, over and over, trying to get your shot! (He really is a high jumper, isn't he?)

great capture! I know that took patience. :)

Thanks everyone! In the end, my family got in on the action. It was pretty funny. Trying to "set" him so he would go off quickly was the challenge. I used my continuous shoot, and took more photos than I would care to admit! This one, amazingly, was caught right at the top.

After that the project deteriorated into a launch fest with a ruler and marker, but the pictures were all just a blur.

Great catch. And don't worry, you're not alone ~ I've spent more time than I'd care to mention on situations like this. Why, just the other day I spent about 30 minutes trying to catch the motion of the bright lights on my daughter's new tennis shoes.
