A cracking piece of avian action here Lillian, beautiful feather detail.

I have just uploaded a set of 13 images with no bother.

Your timing is as ever so good, capturing the wing spread here so well.
But don't the wing feathers look bit tatty and ragged?
A happy New Year to you with many more fine shots in mind, Lillian.
