I totally agree with fmlavita. This is a phenomenal shot overall. An uncommon bird, a good composition, great background. This really has it all. A very good job, indeed. :+fav:

I ve seen many photos with main theme the birds...
This one is the most interesting ever, for three reasons:
First, this is a kind of ~exotic~ bird to my eyes, since the most common bird for me to find and shoot is a pigeon....
Second, the desire you had to catch a specific pose from taking off, helped you to fight untill you get the one you were hoping for...
and last but not least, its an amazing combination of perfect, steady focus and great movement in the foreground and in background....
Congratulations!!!!! :rose:

Thankyou v.much! It involves me runnning round my backyard with camera as they take off and land, its kinda funny i look like an idiot, but getting an ok shot makes it worthwhile.

lol, no but why else would they be there. Plus due to the Cumberland State forest and the other national park that surrounds our suburb we have all the wildlife.
