Taken last week in Finland, I was squatting in 8inches of snow waiting for him to come down, its just not knowing when or where he will go. The light helped, gave me a faster shutter speed. I couldnt use the 500 lens as too heavy to hand hold, so just using my 70-200, which as it happened turned out to be the best lens. As everyone who used it missed out

A stunning capture, pin sharp focus and you've captured such a wonderful pose. Maybe a slightly tighter crop??

Very nice.

If it were mine I'd be tempted to clone out the couple of dark blobs at the top as your eye is drawn to them. Still excellent though.
