    Wow, William! What a pose and look! Lovely detail across the bird. Light looks a bit steep, and the BG is a bit busy, but this is a genuinely nice frame!

    Slam dunk Will, this is to die for, well if I had nine lives! Intensity, sharp, fanned tail, and love the BG. I've got gannets and kites on my mind!!!

    Wicked pose.. You must have made a vertical crop?
    Very nice.

    Top shot, the blurring and color difference gives good separation between the BG and the sharp bird.

    This is excellent. Terrific flight pose and I really like the BG. Tack sharp.
    My only wish would be that the missing primary was present but still a topnotch shot!

    Thanks guys, much appreciated. Hi Dan, no vertical crop, would have been too much of a crop.
