We don't see many of these beauties in flight, and this is superb, Roy! The late light kissing the wings is the icing on the cake for me!

An excellent in-flight image, Roy, of a species that is certainly not photographed flying, very often. Looking forward to seeing some Owl images !

So beautiful- very 3-dimensional and detailed. Just a very appealing shot.

Very nice shot of the Flicker in flight. The late afternoon light on the wings adds warmth and an unexpected highlight to the bird on this late afternoon.
