    Very sweet but the bird's head is angled slightly away from the body. I have never seen many good photos of this species; you got some good ones including this one.

    More detail on this one, but I preferred your original of this bird, even though there was less detail on it....What a tail...

    Great shot. Nice flight pose, and well exposed.

    Dan, super sweet pose opened up and splayed like that. Nice and sharp tip to tip.

    Always loved white on solid blue, and you did well as such.

    It feels the slightest bit cold to my eyes but didn't pull it in to view in LR. Granted, I've never seen this species.

    A solid flight shot overall, congrats!
