Extraordinary shot and perfect clarity. I agree - this is one helluva difficult shot to take. If cropped, you did it masterly. Bravo & respect.

Hi Maurizio,
Here is a great shot! The point of view is rare and the focus reveals a great technique taking into account the fugacious moment. It is necessary to be fast and precise. Very nicely done! Annie

Wonderful picture, Maurizio! Of course, there's a bit of luck in getting the bird in that position, but there's no luck to get that quality of picture! Wonderful DOF control and good choice of background. Stunning!

Wow what a fantastic shot Maurizio! The 3D quality of the bird is priceless! Needless to say your positioning and depth of field are perfect. The background really accentuates the bird! Well done!

This is just stunning. The details, the composition, the way the wings are arranged - perfect frame, straight to my favourites.
