A brilliantly timed capture. Very well done Niles.

I don't think we've seen many (if any) flight shots in the Gallery, so thanks very much for sharing this one.

I don't recall ever seeing a flight shot of one before, they definitely prefer not to fly and when they do it is only for a short distance. Fantastic capture and picture Larry!!!!
