FABULOUS! I love seeing a bird in flight so close to the ground. Rare and well done.

How positively gorgeous! Not only did you catch the bird VERY well, but those bits of color and lines from the wildflowers compliment the bird perfectly!

I really love this one. The little splashes of blue from the wildflowers make it such a great composition.

This deserves a 10. These birds are extremely difficult to catch in mid air. (I had to correct a typo that was bugging me)

Audubon perfect, this is an amazing image richly detailed, properly framed and composed with nothing out of place and technically perfect. It has a great deal of artistic impact and is as stunningly beautiful the third or fourth viewing as it was on the first. A complete artistic and technical success demonstrating motion, grace, and beauty. Well done. Originally rated a 7, this was a mistake on the part of the reviewer because of a faulty initial impression. A 10 is in order.

Beautiful picture. I am glad you chose your shutter to keep the tip of the wings in motion. Focus is spot on
