Jason this is fantastic - capturing black and white so well together - detail in feathers, eye and beak sharp
and all at speed in the air!
A winner in my book.

Hi Jason...have just woken up, so no sunrise from me today.Tongue
I see you waited until late afternoon to get the best of the light for this super-sharp BIF image. No need to get up at stupid o'clock.Tongue
Great capture.

Great flight shot Jason!! The bright light has helped to make a fine image making the background darker!!
