You, my dear, are our FS Queen. :-) This is lovely and was one of my top choices this month. I really like the composition and the moment of capture. You have a knack for seeing and capturing amazing wildlife shots. By the way, there's plenty of detail in the whites on my monitor.

Great capture. That little ledge looks crowded. Are there three nests there?

Top bird deserves a 10. The other 3 drag the photo down somewhat. Crop to top bird may not have worked but might have been worth trying.

Wow, what an amazing capture! how in the world did you get so close?

If I tilt my laptop backwards I get some details in the very white wings and heads. But when it is upright, all details are lost and it is one big white blur of wings. Now this well could just be my lap top and I can not vote you down for this as there are details in the wings and birds, it will be interesting to see what other comments you have about this.
