Hi Adam. What a very colourful shot. very good detail . I like the pose from the two birds. with a nice POV.good timing to get this one .well done TFS.]#

Hi Adam,
Great capture with most wonderful pose of both birds.
Sharpness, clarity and exposure, wich is very hard to get right with all those white feathers, are perfect and the colors and feather details very beautiful.
I suppose the one shouting is a juvenile.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Harry

Very nice Adam, someone's having a bad hair day. Very good timing on your part to capture this action. Very good detail on the two birds with great lighting in difficult conditions.

Thanks, John

A beautiful image of two beautiful birds. The composition seems a bit tight for my taste, with one bird cut off and no room for the other to move. The fluffy hair is wonderful though. Nice capture!

This is a pretty cool action shot Adam. Sharpness is exquisite.
