A most beautiful shot. Looks like it's floating in mid-air.

I don't comment on many photos (much as I admire them) but this one is just simply breathtaking. I can only dream of making such a capture myself...

Wow! many thanks for all those great comments folks, they are very much appreciated.

I wanted to visit the nest every morning to try and capture the young ones first appearance but heavy rain today put a stop to that maybe tomorrow
