Been trying for ages to get anything like this - you've done exceptionally well and the very slight blurring to the body is a small price indeed for the blur of the wings which really makes this shot!
An inspiring image that proves it can be done (to me anyway) Smile

Cheers, Goggz

I've been trying to get a shot of an Emporer on the wing...........I am so glad I'm digital, it would have been such a waste of film!! I have great admiration for folks who can capture them on the wing!!
