good action shot! if only the light were coming from the opposite direction so the face was better lit. I notice the leather straps... was this a "show" animal, or was it really useed for hunting?

hmm. not the same shot i just made a comment on. lol.

another good action shot, but seems a bit noisy. suggest a pass with a good noise reducer like noise ninja, pic cooler, or similar.

Not sure what happened here Tom. It was a show bird. They are very fast, I am lucky to have got the couple that I did, most of my ashots were blurry out of focus images. I will try a noise reduction and maybe repost.
