Another resident of the Hawk Conservancy.The original sky was very bland and flat so I adjusted it, and just a touch of Brightness/Contrast plus cropping.Hope you like it.

Great capture Ron.
Maybe the frame I will change it is too prominent. Also I will try to correct the blue of the sky I feel it is effecting the whites. But these are easily arranged. Nice work.

You don't see this kind of shot everyday! Exposure is perfect. I bet it was tricky getting the exposure right with white clouds or blue sky in the background while you were shooting.
