In sharp turn

By ValeryAst
First of all, I thank you all for your kind words about my previous pictures!
This photo cannot claim to be called the macro, in the fullest sense of the word ... and yet I venture to relate it to this category. To be honest, a taking of this shot was a very difficult task...

Well done Valery - super capture. At first I thought, shame no wings, but then pulling the screen forward I see not only wings but wings that look just like helicopter rotor blades ... Carol

Certainly a great attempt worthy of a vote at the very least, well done, and keep trying. I am already 'semi-hooked' thanks to Ade and some other notable seasoned pro's.
