I'm sure a ballet company will be waving a contract in front of him soon. Awesome catch, Don.

What an amazing capture Don, your composition, clarity and detail are spot on. I don't know how you manage to get the photos that you do of these magnificent birds but you should definitely think about publishing a book.

Jeffrey, you're very kind, and I'm very flattered. Sometimes, there is an element of luck. The only cropping in this photo is a section of blue sky at the top.
