Great shot Duane, looks like it is practicing to be a contortionist.

Awesome! Definitely a pose that we don't normally get to see. My favorite RTHA shot from you yet. Though I would try to remove the OOF brown streak. Very distracting.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

I agree, a spectacular capture. I love the angle and the head turned, as it is (and what an expression) really pulls the shot together as a whole.
