    Top shot! The lead wing creates space for the bird to 'fly' into. The cropped forewing is unlucky; the blur gives the impression (falsely) that it is flying backwards. A flash on shutter-close would have fixed this, but depends on camera model (otherwise you might have trouble asking the Eagle to fly backwards ).

    Thanks Colin.

    I think this is my first Staff Pick ever. I think I'm gonna tear up. *sniff

    Thank you kindly, I'm glad you all like it.

    @Hermie -> I'll have to try that - I love that technique but never think to use it.
    @Cappy -> thanks, that means a lot!! seriously
    @interstellar -> You're right a rear-curtain synch would have changed, but considering this is broad daylight and he's going from light to shadow, I don't think I could have planned for it.

    Thanks again everyone! I do appreciate it!
