I do not expect this t be as well received as my Lucky 13 entry that is similar but I do like it as well. Even though most of the birds are facing away from me they are all looking at me, even though's in-flight.

With only 3 hrs left until rollover this may end up a new personal best for me as it is currently 6.9231! Thanks everyone or the generous votes and lovely comments. Unfortunately, I probably won't know how this finishes until several hours after rollover.

Absolutely stoked about the ribbon, personal best and Verineat! Thanks everyone for the lovely comments.

I spent a few hours chasing birds to try and get the shot I really liked. I ended up with some outtakes I also liked but I havenít got the shot Iím really after (yet).

Congrats on the yellow, Phil. Well deserved - it is a great image and the diagonal composition makes it visually stronger than the outtakes, though they are nice too.

Wow! What cooperative pigeons! They are beautifully arranged and you have captured them beautifully.

Gonna be a battle to first with this one, but I think it should win. The birds actually in flight hit the spot. Amazing that you was able to maintain balance, and have your "seven" in there. Great job, outstanding work.

Good shot - didn't know that the collective noun was "kit" - photograph and a lesson in one... My fovorite is the second one on the left.

The border works well here. Great contrast on the birds. Great capture overall. I expect this to do well.
