Moment of liftoff

I was trying to get the moment when it flies away but didn't really manage to get "the" moment, this one is I think closer to the moment before liftoff. Anyway I liked the pose captured here that's why I chose this frame.
Sometimes I'd need a faster body to catch exactly the moment I'd like to.. and more and more, I miss AF.. never had a lens with af on this body excluding the kit lens but I don't use that too much, only for landscapes where mf is just as good.
But enough of my problems, enjoy the picture if you like it! :)

Best reagrds,
Andor
