Wow, I really love this shot, the sprey hitting him in the back, him trying to shake it off, looks like the little guy is battling a storm! Excellent work! Spot on! Click!!!

How you managed to get this one sharp and clear in the right spot is a mystery to me! I guess you prefocused and waited for the righ ttime. Not only a high quality photo but so unusual as well. It really catches the action.

Wow I like the mixture of motion blur and sharpness on the bird. It gives a nice effect. Great DOF and composition. The frame works like a clock. Smile
Great capture and timing.
