[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The bird in the air to the left is looking wistfully back at the post it was just forced to vacate. It had been sitting peacefully on the post, which is under a small foot bridge in a marsh, when the second bird arrived and convincecd, using signals i did not see, it to leave.

Hi Tom,

I like the action you've captured here. I've done a WS to remove some of the shadows and give a better view of these 2 characters. Very nicely saturated colors and POV.

I'll never figure it...you are so good at titles it is amazing...The title of the picture makes it so...or as someone on Star Trek used to say "Say it and it will be done..."


Hi Tom, great action shoot with splendid sensation of speed, lovely take off and landing of nice birds with good light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Tom,
Wonderful moment captured and an apt title. The motion-blur on the wings look majestic and the poses of both the birds are so eloquently illustrated. Great POV and BG. Superb composition. Kudos.
