Well of course, he's a bird!

Seriously though, a great capture of a nifty species; well done.

Thanks!

I got drawn to his face and body, did not frame the shot well, and chopped of the little guys legs.

So, did he win the airshow?

I love these little guys and they turn up in the most unusual places.

Nice find Frank!
Everyone else was probably wondering why you were looking down at an airshow, but you found a neat looking burrower and captured it very well. I really like the 2nd image a lot.
