POTW 19-July-2016

It was going to be a bird this week and just when I thought Zafra52 would feature dear old Ozimax pops up with an image that I think is just 1% better.
This image has grace and really captures the bird in flight. And sharp as a tack with beautiful colours.

Thanks to Matt. I think. "Dear old Ozimax" indeed. I mean, I'm 2/3 way to the grave but I still act like a 9 year old... :biglaugh:

I imagine both Zafra and I realize that these magnificent birds with their colour and gracefulness deserve any credit given. They are wonderful creatures to watch in action.

Good to see someone shooting the bird.

So to speak.

Excellent choice.
