You got this technique off to perfection, Sylvia: another beautifully timed shot, the detail quite immaculate, and what a 'pose' if I can put it that way.

Sylvia this trio of pidgeon shots have been absolutely superb. These flight shots are always the most difficult to capture-- and you have done it so well.
