Taken at Gigrin on Saturday. My first visit and well worth the trip, definately going to go back for another visit soon.

Unfortunately this photo required a large crop and I decided to leave in the dangling foot rather than clone it out. However I love the shape of the wings and the moody background.

ISO 200
1/2000 @ f5.6

Thanks for looking.

Well as I know from trying a couple of weeks ago how difficult these are I'll vote for it, big crop or not.

I probably would have cloned the foot, simply because it is in shadow it is not easily recognisable as a foot.

Looks like you had good wind direction as they were mainly diving with their heads turned away when I went.

Cracking photo, I was there on Thursday, and it was bombing it down, so didn't do to well!

Outstanding shot of a magnificent bird of prey. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that!

Excellent image.
