Probably fairly obvious but i) this is a captive bird ii) banking means turning in the air, i am not suggesting that the bird was nipping to the bank

For those purists that think that flight photography should only be made of truly 'wild' birds - the very best of luck regards some sepcies especially Peregrine, you obviously have more skill and patience and time than myself

Captive or not, this is a good shot of a fast moving bird.

Dave, your comment creases a dilemna which unf i am going to lose out on the side of truth. i do not generally believe in manipulated images but the original sky was complete pants.
