It is a terrific capture but very soft, I hope you don't mind but I tried to make it look a little better.

Mind? Of course not. It looks much better. I haven't had time to edit the original, plus I'm just starting to learn to use Photoshop CS2. What sw did you use?

It's a great pose but, without a long lens and rock steady hold these shots are next to impossible! don't give up though, the more you practice the better they'll get.

Wish I had one shot half as good. The only time I see them is when driving in my car, and never get the change to take a picture.

That is a nice shot, but GW is right, unless the bird is very close, a tripod is really required to get sharp images like that.
