Wow Mike, that's a ripper of a shot. The in-flight pose nicely fills the frame and the lighting is gorgeous.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

What a crack'in shot this is Cog! Sharpness, lighting, background and flight composition are all spot on.

I especially like your second shot, because it shows close-up detail of the face. As everyone knows, crows and ravens can really be difficult targets due to their all black coloration. Any time I can clearly see the eyes, I'm usually pretty happy with the shot. You accomplished that quite nicely, havelock!

Killer shot, Ed!

Very nicely captured incoming shots, realairlight! They are always tough to do with swallows.

Great shot here LD! Excellent focus, sharpness, action pose, and pleasant light!

What a wonderful compliment, Mark! I truly appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Lol! Know that feeling. Looks like he's gonna crash right into you. You got him though, and with good head and eye detail too, nice job.

Love the colors in this, the duck and the surroundings. The water even looks cold. Very nice.
