V1 wins it for me ....
glad I am not a bird having to negotiate those twigs.
28 Jan 2014 9:16AM
The timing of V1 is spot on with the wings in the forward position, Lillian.
Love the clarity and detail in V2.

Two superb images as usual Lillian, love V1, the bg doesn't worry me, you have captured him in his natural environment and that makes it a true wildlife shot instead of one that's been photoshopped...V2 is so pretty, deserves it's own upload....great photography as usual
28 Jan 2014 9:32AM
Agree with Colleen. Both amazing images Lillian. Love them both. V1 is a superb in flight capture and V2 is stunning GrinGrin

I'd never have believed that bird in V2 had such an amazing wing span.
Great to see specimens we won't see here in GB.

Not sure what you've done with the border on this, Lillian (white stripe at bottom) but the shape of the bird is excellent. Sharp on the head and so dynamic. 'Respect' as the younger generation might say.... have a UA.
