Killdeer performing a ritual dance.

After getting orioles in mid air, I have been trying to capture the killdeer in the air. They are much harder to shoot because you can't lure them to a specific location with food. I watched them for a long time and noticed that, when in a group, one would often seem to go crazy and perform a sort of ritual dance jumping in the air and whirling about. This bird was not taking off or landing but dancing like a lunatic.
