Featherweight Fighters - Round Two

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. I am so grateful to Peter (Mollycat), Mike (Mike_Smith), Jo (jocas), David (craigwildlifephotography), Annette (annettep38), Richard (DicksPics) and Patty (pentaxpatty) for their very generous User Awards. Thank you so much.

This is a shot I uploaded in June last year but the birds were much higher in the frame. Willy (banehawi) very kindly pm'd me telling me how to correct this and also put a mod up. I really wanted to see if I could do it as well and as it was Mothers Day and the weather was not very nice I had a go. I am really happy with the result. Hope you like it.

Have a great evening.

Cathy and Stan

The other two think you are a reincarnation of the artist that portrayed **** fighting for the Georgians. I said no. You're far to young. All jesting apart this is very very good, and all three of us like it loads.

A brilliant avian action shot Cathy, you've timed this one to perfection to catch these featherweight fighters going at it hammer and tongs!
