    Very nice...I really like this one. I bet it wasn't an easy shot to get. Lovely detail with nice BG. I think the bird slightly higher in the frame would make it even better. Good flight pose and HA.

    beautiful in-flight view of this speedy bird! This is a wonderful depiction of this bird. Bird might look better higher in the frame as suggested, but I imagine you wanted to keep that lovely stripe of soft blue at the top with the current composition. Surprised 1/4000 wasn't enough to fully freeze the wings. The view of the plumage is stunning......

    Fun Shot. I like the wing position. Agree with other points mentioned in the image.

    Bird higher in the frame would have been ideal, but I would take this as it is.

    Another beauty. Although I prefer the other image that had the snowy habitat, this one is fun as well. I agree about the placement of the bird within the frame.

    Excellent. Love the pose and that great detail on the bird. Killer background as well.
