Dave, it is our goal to keep the quality UP! No more EBC just to get the number, only when the bird is really special one.

Some really fabulous shots in this batch, and some were very difficult in-flight shots like the swift and giant!

 

Well done to you and Zvezda!

The Giant Kingfisher in flight is special.
