Well sort of. Legend has it the inventor of the football game wanted to call it "The Hobby", but the trademark was not granted. So instead he use the Latin name for the Hobby, Falco Subbuteo.

I spent a couple of hours this past week photographing hobbies at a site in Northamptonshire. Always exciting to have these little rockets whizzing around the hides, especially after rain when they come and hunt low down.

Thanks all.

I think that one was a St Marks. Most of the insects they were catching were those or mayfly. In shot #3 you can see it is a st marks if you look very closely, at least in the full size version. In #5 I think that was mayfly but cannot be sure.

Brilliant photographs and what a joy that must have been to witness. Interesting preamble as well.
