Wonderful photography, so different b/o both the action shots and the conditions under which it was captured.

Phenomenal timing to get the body, head and eye so sharp yet all that wing blur and the second bird in the distance... and the snow. So much to admire!

This looks so lifelike

You have caught this perfectly, Malcolm. The spread of the wings with the action blur is bloody marvellous!
That snow really adds to the image, as I said on the previous upload.
