A cracking piece of avian action here Lillian, beautiful feather detail.

I have just uploaded a set of 13 images with no bother.

Your timing is as ever so good, capturing the wing spread here so well.
But don't the wing feathers look bit tatty and ragged?
A happy New Year to you with many more fine shots in mind, Lillian.

Lovely feathery detail, Lillian. A characterful study.

I'm using google chrome and it took a while just to open these images!! The ipad brings it up in a jiffy!!

A Happy New Year to you too, and a healthy and peaceful year to come.
