Sorry, had a beer or two in me last night.

Great shot, I was just wondering if you could open up the left side of the pic instead of centering the bird.

Didn't mean for it to be a negative comment, just another option on a great shot.

What a great image. The tail feathers almost look backlit, and I love the spread on the wings. Perfect!

This is great. I like the downward wings, curl of the wingtips, and the luminance through the tail feathers.
