This one shines, even without clicking on it! Great detail and stop-action against a nice layered BG. Great capture! Well deserved EP.

Thanks Brian! 

I appreciate your comment and thanks for the info I didn't think to add. I added it to my description.

Hope you will be able to make it out there to see these guys this spring!

Sadly not gonna happen this year Dave...................just cancelled yesterday.  Too difficult logistically and surprisingly it seems Colorado is having a harder time with the virus than many other western states.  It's OK................the birds aren't going anywhere.

I remember this one, it looks as good now as when I first saw it. A Salem classic with peak action, beautiful image quality and beautifully processed.
