Great shot! I’ve been seeing them at Bosque a lot lately, but they are hard to capture in flight and of any significant size in the frame. Beautiful birds.

An excellent in-flight image, of a species that I am sure isn't photographed in this manner very often. Great colours here, with the red and blue, Cindy.

Marvellous image Cindy. Seems a rarity to see them in flight. Well done.
Make your life spectacular!

Great looking image of a bird that I've never viewed personally, but that I've never previously seen an image in flight. Very nice.
