Hobbies feeding near Larnaca Airport

I took these images of a small group of Hobbies hawking insects with some Red footed Falcons near Larnaca Airport during my recent visit to Cyprus in October. There were about 8 birds altogether flying low over some fields near the airport during the early evening. It was a great sight to see but the speed these birds move made it difficult to get clean sharp images. Thee were all taken with my 200-400mm lense hand held. A few days later I saw a similar sight during the evening light near Akrotiri but I was not able to get any decent images.
