Fantastic! I know how hard it is to capture something like this from my brother-in-law' John's attempts (JG123456). Impressed to note it is also handheld! The colour and detail are just amazing & altogether pin-sharp.

Excellent capture well timed
Tremendous shot, nice and sharp and excellent timing. These types of shot are not easy to get.
