I made a short visit to the local airport today.  A Bellanca Super Decathlon in eye-catching colors was visiting from Huntsville.  This looks like it would be real "fun machine".

The local skydivers were active in the beautiful sunshine.  Here, a tandem pair (instructor and student) were making a sharp turn upwind for landing.

Two more tandem pairs were lined up for landing.

Students are told to raise their feet as they approach the ground, while the instructor handles the ground contact.

This was my first time to try the ZD 50mm f/2.0 Macro with AF for sky divers.  Not being as agile as I once was, I shot from near the terminal rather than out near the landing zone, but tracking the jumpers against blue sky was not as difficult as I thought it might be.  I might even get up enough nerve to try the 50-200 SWD.
