    Sweet pose and BG. Light looks good too. I think 1/2000 was just a little too slow, or the FP landed on the chest not the face. So tough to get these guys in flight. TFS

    I agree with Alex, I think at 1/3200 or 1/4000 this would be tack sharp. Still a great shot at normal viewing distance, unique pose and the background is pretty pleasing. TFS!

    Very tough indeed, and this one is showing some motion blur on the face. Wicked pose though!

    Getting these in flight is nearly impossible, so this is an outstanding effort. Pose and background is money, but the general lack of sharpness is tough. Combination of small, fast subject and slow-than-ideal shutter dealt that blow.
