    A couple of male marsh harriers meet, seems to cause alarm and the "I'm this big" pose.

    Neat moment captured and sharp. What were they aruging about? 220mm would have been ideal ...

    Nice Interaction. The downside of having Prime lens is that it is very hard not to clip wings etc.

    I would dodge the face of the bird on the right side of frame (Minor point). I love the face on the left of the frame.

    Wonderful action shot. Techs look good. I wish the wings were not clipped on the right bird as viewed. Thank you for sharing, Tim.

    Wow, very cool interaction. I'm OK with the cut wings, but if you have a bit more above for the left bird's wingtips then that would be awesome to add back a bit. I do wish the right bird's face was also sunlit. All-in-all, this is a heck of an image!!

    Wonderful action captured. Ditto the comments above. I don't mind the clipped wings since the tight framing allows the viewer a good look at that marvelous bird on the left. Nicely seen and captured.
