    Does it count if I try to favourite this time after time after ti…………..
    Superb capture, perfect timing, absolutely wonderful shot

  • Sure! Keep making my day, making my day… I can’t take a lot of credit, though. The bird, the lighting, and the camera had a lot to do with it. My role was to aim, focus, and shoot. And not drop the camera in amazement.

    Well, I never. And I’m not sure I’d know what to do if I did. This is extraordinary; the Comet for the Comet. Perfection.

  • Thank you, dear! The Comet lucked out, that’s what happened. Good angle, great lighting, and a belly-flopping fishing hawk that decided to dive nearly at my feet. He showed a lot of talent for not falling into the drink. I was hoping, though.
