A beautiful and dynamic flight shot with very good detail, Sandy. Wish the eye were just a little more visible. :) I don't think the pose, with wings extended upward, could be any better. Well done!

A very nice wing position makes for a striking image, well captured Sandy.

Impressive image, Sandy...thanks for including the distance to the subject....that's good information that should be included more often, in my opinion.
Cheers from the Canadian west coast,
