Magnificent capture of small bird close up and in flight! V1 is outstanding because that is so difficult to do.

The timing of V1 is spot on with the wings in the forward position, Lillian.

Two superb images as usual Lillian, love V1, the bg doesn't worry me, you have captured him in his natural environment and that makes it a true wildlife shot instead of one that's been photoshopped...V2 is so pretty, deserves it's own upload....great photography as usual

Not sure what you've done with the border on this, Lillian (white stripe at bottom) but the shape of the bird is excellent. Sharp on the head and so dynamic. 'Respect' as the younger generation might say.... have a UA.
