These were riding the thermal winds at the top of a mountain I climbed today.

Gotta agree with MA on that first shot. But dang that head and face is something only a mother could love!

Yeh looks like someone played drums to a long song with an ugly stick on that face! :)

Excellent shots on both Turns, and as said, perfect detail in feathers.
I would have to say I am more impressed with the detail you got from second shot. Amazing work, as it is shadowed against that sky.

I'm really liking the second one also. Great catch Turns...they are so fun to watch soar....I remember from my times on the Island. :)

Amazing shots! I love 'em both. That second one must have been flying over a reflector! Of course, if you were on top of a mountain (I'd love to see the pano shot you took ;) ) then maybe the ground was white and reflective?

Love the lighting on the feathers in the second one.
