Hi Jeff
difficult conditions and perfect exposure on white feathers

Hi Jeff,
What a wonderful bird in flight. We don't see many images of Ptarmagin here or Arctic pictures for that matter. Great timing,focus and light. You even caught a little sparkle in its eye. Well done.

great striking capture, TFS Ori
