Gracious! A super shot like this scoring in the 6's, and then only makes it to 112th place. Well, you and your 16 commenters know its pretty darn good.

Well composed and nicely timed shot. Not real common to catch one with a meal in the talons either. ((7))

Wow what a beautiful bird in an outstanding "in flight" shot. Excellent colors and clarity and the bird goes well against the background. Well done and keep up the good work in 2005. <7>

Nice crisp image. Well captured. Not sure if I may have liked it more seeing the full wingspan. Still a good shot.

Whilst it's certainly an extraordinary moment, and in amny ways a fabulous capture, I must also say that I think there are elements missing from this shot that would make it a real no-hold-barrred wonder shot. I'm not talking about anything as simplistic as the crop, or framing - certainly for web display that works tremendously. There's a lack of sense of motion, of the process of movemtn in the bird - and a very strange aspect to it's eye, which is my main dislike here - it rather removes character, unfortunately. There's so much that is really really good here that it almost overcomes that hurdle - but just not quite, to my eye.

Good capture. Like the crop 7.

Would be nice to see the entire wing I think, nice work all the same!

Really a terrific capture! The nice soft, solid bg works well with the brown in the bird. Great action shot.

The bass appears to be missing a portion of its head
