Interesting how much darker they appear in flight. Nice upper-wing detail Steve.

Beautiful flying shots Steve. I love your two last posts. Sorry for being absent at the moment!!

I am awed. Humbled even. I don't know how you managed to pan with the birds and still keep them so sharp -- especially in weather like you've described in the last couple of posts. But the motion blur in the background says that has to be what you did. I don't think I've been that steady on my best day.

I bow to you sir!

Steve, The detail in this shot is incredible, and the composition is great. Looks like it could be in National Geographic.
