After struggling just to capture a bird, I understand how difficult capture alone is. But, you've gone way beyond that, this is totally a work of art and is exquisite.

Congratulations and a job well done. #6199000

Elizabeth: Absolutely a show-stopping image. Sharpness and composition are super. Certainly a work to be proud of! Nicely done! (ps were you the same Elizabeth W. who took Jim M.'s course in the Red Rocks/Zion region a few years back?) #6199164

The image definitely has memory capturing ability, as the composition is exquisite and it's perfect in black and white.

I expect this to be an all time winner. You've earned a finalist and a POTD, next is comes the gold! #8861307
