Fantastic image! Love the moment and the execution of the image is almost perfect! Thank you for joining my challenge. It will be a tough choice in the end...

Such a great image..showing why the African/dutch name of this bird is Nimmerzat (never enough). And this is one of my top 5 images...but I can choose only one and there are a couple of them that I personally like a little bit better...sorry..
