This is a very very nice photo, Dean! I love the simplicity of bird and blue skies. Great composition too! #211866

Whoa! Looks like he is coming in for a landing. Great image. #1081991

I like this shot a lot. It's a very unusual angle for a bird, whether in flight or in a "landing pattern" which makes it stand out to me. Of course, as soon as he lands the grace disappears...but until then... #1084596
