Wow...very nice capture Ed...there sure is a lot of air pressure that he/she is generating..reminds me of a chopper hovering over water! Looks like another candidate for Smithsonian Magazine!!

Beautiful capture of the amazing aerodynamics, and, as always, of all the color, detail & action!

Wow! Awesome shot, incredible feather detail in a bird that's SO hard to photograph (if you want something more than a white blob, that is).
