R5, 500f4, 1.4x, 1/2000s, f/5.6, ISO 1000, manual

Photographed on Long Island early in the morning, the smoke of the wildfires prevented harsh shadows, the air quality is a different story.

P.S.: Something was wrong with the file I uploaded last night and I edited the post with a corrected version but it does not seem to show yet, sorry about that.

Such a beautiful pose with the wings and tail totally fanned out. The fish is a nice bonus. The soft light is quite nice- but I'm sure breathing that smoke was not fun.

A very dramatic, and excellent, in-flight image, Axel. Always extra special when the subject is photographed with a prey.( The R5 and the 500,
are certainly a wonderful combination, for great images.)

+1.  Beautiful image Axel.  Tough about the air quality though.
Make your life spectacular!

Another superb capture, Axel! the spread wings and completely fanned tail are so beautiful. The air quality must be awful for humans and wildlife.

Congratulations- excellent flight shot-I like the spread tail. I hope the air quality is improving.
