Not birds… but an amazing photo!

Taking good photos of a solar eclipse strikes me as a pretty tricky thing to get right – after all, it’s not like you get that many opportunities to practise. However, someone at work today drew my attention to a recent image that’s several cuts above. Take a look:

And note that the window of opportunity to get the shot was less than 1 second… M. Legault has got something rather special!

edit: and now, having done a bit more research, it turns out this isn’t the first time! shows the International Space Station in line with the Sun, just as the Space Shuttle Atlantis is about to dock… more like 0.5 seconds opportunity this time. Incredible.
