Hi rogoff,

I would also be pleased with such a shot. The quality and the composition arenĀ“t for National Geographic ) but it had to be an adventure for you to take such a picture!

Good job!

The shot is well presented, very nice crop with the low angle looking upwards to the bird breaking the pure blue sky, and the grass maintaining balance. This is a good shot, one that you should be proud of. My only suggestion would perhaps be to crop out a touch more blue sky in order for the balance of positive and negative space to be a touch more equal...more grass and less sky (but just a touch). This would probably be my crop choice, or something similar:
