Beautiful details in the blacks Greg. Like to have seen a tiny bit of separation of the wing tip but they don't fly to plan. Nicely done.
Make your life spectacular!

Gorgeous capture of this elegant species, Greg! I love the pose, the detail and setting - and the way the wing tip gives the illusion of almost brushing the sand!

Very nice in-flight image, Greg - wonderful colours of the ocean background, as well.
