The sight of a Shag coming in to land with its feathers  splayed out, somehow reminds me of those intrepid pioneering aviators in their magnificent flying machines.....hence, my odd little title ;)

Perfect title for this flight shot considering the gaps in the wing feathers! Lovely banking pose coming in to land.

Great title-with those ragged wings and tail, perhaps it needs a prayer!

Great incoming pose and interesting almost-monochromatic effect.

Killer incoming banking pose! I like the addition of the birds in the background also.
