When sunbathing for an extended period and you see one of these above you, you have been lying still for too long. The image is sharp and the DOF excellent.
Thanks for posting

Gran imagen en vuelo Callie.
Muy buena agudeza, pese al fondo que no ayuda con muchos detalles en sus plumas.
Correcto encuadre y gran nota.
Great image in flight Callie.
Very good sharpness, in spite of the bottom that nonaid with many details in its pens.
Correct frame and great note.

I believe that this shot just made up my mind, Callie :) This is an exceptional action shot. Great work, super note. Now I have to apply for a green card.

The sky is no good but the Griffon is great. Nice handling of the light and the pose is wonderful looks like a preper for landing. Very nice one Callie.

Hello Callie! What a shot! I guess it's difficult to gather so many details in such a moving image. You figure all what these raptors look like, up to the intense eye and beak combination, but really in action. It's impressive.

Excellent action freeze. Hard work with the exposure I bet. The picture has a hard look but it suits the bird's image very well indeed. Great work Callie.

I find it very difficult to point and shoot to moving targets, and find this type of shots out of my targets. I must learn and practice. Thanks for the technical decription.
An great capture.
Excellent sharp detail,very impressive.

Grande immagine del rapace che atterra, gli artigli protesi verso l'atterraggio e le ali a frenare la velocità! Ottimo tempismo!

Splendid, fantastic shot. I had to laugh at japie!!!! I cannot imagine seeing one free diving. I constantly see eagles, kites, and hawks in Asia, but they glide, this looks a bit awkward...... vicious!
