hello Paul,
très net sur le corps et juste un petit flou à l'extrémité des ailes : beau mouvement. Bravo! Samuel

Wow, Paul, very well done. I wish I could say that I took the picture. The composition is perfect; you have the bird perfectly positioned in the picture with open space in front of it for the bird to fly into, and you even have the reflection of the sun in the eye. The BG is good as well. The only point I can raise is that I think the bird itself (the wingtips are fine as is indicating motion) might have been a tad sharper, but that is just personal taste. You have outdone yourself, well done!
