Thanks Rian. I think you are referring to this one?
It bombed on DPC but received an award on a Wildlife Photography Competition.
I've received two awards there and had 6+ finalists. Validation enough for me!

Incoming !!!
great pose and composition
nice focus
love the feathers on the tips of the wings
So nice from the bird for lowering the wing and not casting a shadow on the face :)

Wish the white highlights had more detail

He looks like frozen in the sky. Great example of panning and freezing movement
