I'm amazed that you managed to catch one of these lightning fast creatures.

They can fly every which way except upside down, and they are the very devil to capture!

Superb image Sandy. Not only have you managed a difficult capture but you have placed the bird perfectly in the frame and achieved some nice blur against a perfectly a colored background. This deserves to do very well.
