    very unique and interesting shots, with a different type of nature than one associates from there!

    Well done, crisp flight shots too.
     
  4. Oh how beautiful! These are some of the most beautiful shots I've ever seen! I love the backgrounds, the color, the action, EVERYTHING about em! Fantastic shootin!
     
  5. Fantastic shots! The combination of these spectacular birds and the wonderful scenery is a severe test of technique: but no-one would know by looking at these photos. They take my breath away, make me so jealous and give me vertigo at the same time!
