Artistic capture of this bird in flight, Jose.
The golden glow of the morning sun makes this image look really beautiful.
Thanks and regards.

Fantastic clarity and colors!

Hello Jose, I can never able to take such picture with my limited gear but I always admire those able to do it and I also enjoy such bird in flight image. You managed the exposure so well that I literally feel its speed and the turbulence it created in the air. Stunned sharpness with outstanding clarity and details. Thank for sharing
