Fantastic shot Raymond.I could never take one like this, the bird would have been underexposed, or blurred! Good framing too. Something for me to aspire to!

I had submitted this image before in black and white. This is the original color version with a different cropping. The title was suggested by Marijana Fajql at that time. Thanks Marijana! I am entering it into the monthly theme... What can be more inspiring than the total freedom of a bird in full flight against the sky? I think this is the ultimate dream of mankind: freedom... because freedom means peace! Peace be with you all in this holidays!
