    I like the crop the nice up wing position and the perch.

    Fantastic timing with the wings up pose Joe. Is this much of a crop? The far wing looks a bit 'off' for some reason, lacking in detail compared to the rest of the bird.

    Nice control of the whites and I really like the fact he's only just left the perch

    Great take-off pose with full wing stretch, Joe. Nice focus on the head where it counts most. Good exposure and comp.
