Your expertise with the camera seems to extend over a variety of genres, John, as this excellent head on in-flight shot shows: at just 200mm. it must be about to crash into the front of your lens any momentWinkWink.

This is stunning - not just the capture of flight with aggressive intent, but the fact that it works as a composition, and the green light reflected on the breast and echoed in the background.

'Incoming'! Excellent shape and sharpness, John, and two lovely catchlights. Spot on, and no room for manouvre at f2.8.
