Thats an astonishing exceptional inflight capture with such wing feather detail.
Excellent colors and depth of field is superb. Amazingly well timed for the wings
being clean and sharp.

Another beaut. Amazing to see the expression on the bird's face as he flies; it looks like intense concentration. Probably listening to his satnav telling him how to get home to feed the family.
