    You have captured this very well TC as I know they are never still for one moment and so are difficult to get pictures of. I love the wing action in these.

    I agree on the wing action - very cool!

    And whatever it is I hope it keeps that long, pointy, sharp- looking thing away from my body!

    I like the angle of the second shot. The wing action is great too.

    These are AMAZING!

    And I don't usually post with all caps or exclamation marks, either.
