Taken yesterday at Elephant Head Pond, Arizona.

This was my first time at a ranch set-up. Lots to learn still, but I enjoyed it very much. The host Dano couldn't have been better.

All comments and critiques welcomed. 

Best,

Matt

A unique frame, Matt, with the bird in mid air without wings extended. Was it hopping or changing locations on the perch? The perch and background are beautiful and contribute a lot to the image. Nicely done!

Wonderful capture Matt!  Was it saying 'whoopeeeee!' while it bounced up and down?  :D 

A priceless and unique shot.  Love it!

Thank you so much, Ron. Yes, it was hopping down from another perch. 

Best,
Matt

Very nice action image with an outstanding perch and background. The pond is pretty amazing. Thanks for posting. Dave
