I love the detail and perfect timing of this image. My only nit is I wish there was more canvas to the left.

Thank you all for the kind compliments and glad you enjoyed.

Yes, would have liked a little more space also, but this was a quick shot, freehand, with a 500mm F4 with TC attached, as they jumped in front of us, so this is all I got, and lucky at that.:shrug:

I've always heard that "luck" is where preparation and opportunity meet. When you open Webster's and look up the word preparation, there's a picture of HBG given as an example. I think you did very well.

There is something comical about it. Kind of like running on water. Great timing.

I thought I had commented on this, but looks like I missed it. Great timing and super sharp.

That's awesome, HBGirl! Would look very cool as a two page spread in a magazine!
