A real beauty, Paul. Super flight pose, excellent plumage detail, and lovely complementary background. A great avian photograph!

Paul, now that's a tough shot to get, especially with the good angle you got, as they sometimes come bursting out without warning!  Super nice flight angle, pose and complementary BG.  Neat to see the trailing feet.

a very perfect one from beck to the feet and the added earth tone bg color is a bonus.
