Hi kona,

a great inflight,well seen and captured with good light and colors,my compliments,


what backlight!
perhaps much contrast on body (you can see a black line on its tale) but you cought a very good action moment and very well exposed.


Cazzarola! Che foto super! Questo controluce è da panico!

Magnifica, me encanta la captura en vuelo y la luz. TFS.

Looks focused on that mouse. Great action shot with the blurry wings accentuating the flight motion. Composition is excellent. Well done. Regards,

Excelente !! Gran juego de colores y enfoque inmejorable. Composición adecuada. Una gran fotografía.
