Very very good...

this image express everything I feel when I see these majestic birds at zoos and at falconries.

I have seen free Bataleurs in Africa and they are among the most beautiful and acrobatic raptors one can see in the wild.

Very well done!

Cheers, Jens.

Thank you Jens for your comment.
You are one of the few people who understand what the picture is about.

I do envy that you have had the opportunity to see these birds flying in the wild - I don't think that I will have that chance.
