    Another beauty, great timing. This looks slightly yellow compared to the previous - probably different light, having said that you may wish to try lowering the yellows a little and adding a little contrast to the mid tones - it provides a little pop.

    Very nice wing position and I like the overall image.

    subtle changes to the tones in mid-tones etc would really help.

    Another nice view, Joseph. Action is beautifully frozen, and the wispy sky behind is really sweet. I also like how the foliage is equally in-focus all around. It really makes the photo feel deliberate versus a grab shot.

    A bit more contrast as others have noted. White throat on right bit is also a bit hot, but that's probably an easy local fix.
