I Really do want to express my sincere thanks to you all for the interest & comments regarding this image.As you all know I spend much of my time by the river,sometimes fruitless & sometimes rewarding ,one never knows what a 12 hour day will bring.
Watching this unfold was a very special moment for me & i'm glad I managed to capture a few images to share,despite the heart palpitations and quivering hands Tongue

The UA's as always are most appreciated and THANK YOU All for giving.......It makes it all worthwhile.

Very Best Wishes

INcredible shot. Beautifully composed, perfectly timed, gorgeous bokeh, pin sharp and great interaction between the two birds. Perfect.

What can be said that hasn't already been expressed! Only, perhaps, that every now and again you see an image that stops you in your tracks and takes your breath away. This is just such an image. Incredible work and well-deserving of the multitude of awards from talented togs.
