Indeed a nice capture. Got the bird in perfect form. The light really shows good detail also.

Todd and Charles, I appreciate the compliments. I agree that the lighting was just about perfect to show the feather (and other) detail, and I was lucky to catch him (or her) sailing instead of flapping. Thanks again!

Cathy, thanks so much! When I saw him/her/it approaching, I prayed it would pass right over. I had the camera in "sports mode" and just kept shooting. I couldn't have asked for better lighting either! Thanks again! Jay

Jim, I'm always in awe when a GREAT photographer compliments my work (it gives me hope), and I thank you for the compliments. If I can capture anything HALF as fantastic as ALL your photos are, I'll consider myself a success. Thanks again! Jay
