    That beautiful backlight on #1 is something we all aspire to get but happens rarely. Good catch there.

    Dang! Nice timing on the first one. The backlit spray and wings make the shot really special. National Geographic-esque, in fact. I wouldn't change a thing.

    As said #1 is my favorite it's amazing how far away from the bird you can see the water droplets in the sky.
