Really cracking good shot Dave. Timing is just about perfect and the wing blur exactly conveys the feeling of flight. Superb shot.

Ahem..Cough Cough.
This isnt quite there yet as you know.
The focus on the head is out a tad but the body is tack sharp...the bokeh is beautiful and all with natural light...not a flash in sight!!
You are going to just run and run with this and I look forward to what is going to be a series of stunning captures.
All the Best
