    Hi Jon .... HOT STUFF !!!!
    Way more difficult to get this done ... compared to raptors or others , I guess
    No nits ... and I would be really happy to have it in my collection .
    Colors looking great !!!

    Just wish you had closed the aperture more .... plenty of iso to play with .

    TFS Andreas

    Looks great Jonathan, and I guess a difficult one to capture. The face does look a little soft to me though.

    Your best so far Jon, from your woodland birds in flight....Great pose..Colours are spot on...I really like the view of the yellow feathers on the wing...I would be more than happy with this one...I would try f/6.3 if possible, at this distance. Very well done, not an easy task..

    Hi Jon, brilliant inflight capture here. Focus spot on where it counts, and I really like the colours. Congrats on this fine shot.
