Not a natural environment? Wow, this guy must work for Nasa. he must have been one of the people that faked the moon landing. Hahn, you comment almost the same on everyones wildlife pics. Do you think you are that great? You have a problem, you think nobody else is as good as you. You really need to get over yourself and see that there are many people more experienced than you. I mean come on , you think these people took these pics in a zoo, and all along they took them in the wild, and are so good, they made think they were taken in a zoo. Get real dude.

hahn's right, birds are not mean't to fly, especially in big blue skies, so it must be a zoo! jk :P
Seriously great shot and clarity, I like both of you submissions so far. Congrats on a 7+ score in only your second challenge.

Thanks for the comment. Though I have to disagree with your critique as I do feel that the natural enviroment of a bird in flight is a blue sky,
Take Care...

great shot at this size. It looks just a little soft around the eyes, I suspect the larger image is not as crisp. But from what I see (and I understand how hard these are to get), it's very nice.

What a fantastic capture! I love birds of prey but don't have a telephoto lens and the ones near us are never low enough to the ground so I don't get these kind of shots.
