A nightjar is captured by a photographer as it swoops down to the  surface of a pond to quench its thirst. The sight was captured on camera  by Scott Linstead, using special motion sensor technology. He had set  up an infrared beam at the pond, in Amado, Arizona, which automatically  tripped the camera flash when it sensed movement.
