Superb Ann!! This is very well done indeed! Focally - bang on and with that slight movement of the wing tip and water drops really brings this to life.

Awesome capture Ann. Could be, IMHO, the best shot you have put on here. The focus and plumage detail are quite outstanding. Pity about clipping the wing but that really is a very minor point. A cracker.

Great details and timing Ann. Like the angle on this showing the tip movement and a great still head with the water frozen in the air

As mentioned above, just a pity the wing tip's clipped on the left, but this is a stunning capture, Ann. This must be seen large to appreciate the cracking detail, and those water droplets just add icing on the cake. Has to rate amongst one of your very best.
