Most people do not realize how hard this capture is, to get the focus right on anything that is approaching you head on at speed, you have achieved this so well Val, excellent capture.

Amazing that you got a shot at all with that speed and focal length combo! Needs sharpening here on the site, remember to resize, save as, then open the new file, sharpen, save and then upload.

Quick mod loaded with sharpening.
