Like it Ann, great sense of movement.

Great take-off action Ann, what do you mean not great? it's very good for my money, catching any bird as good as this when it's not something you do all the time is tremendous.

1/1250 second and you still have wonderful motion blur in the wings - this is about energy and movement, and the miracle of flight. I much prefer this sort of image, which actually says something about life, to pin-sharp birds-on-sticks, which might just as well come courtesy of the taxidermist.
F4.2 has given you a greeny gold bokeh haze as background, beautifully Impressionistic.
