An incredibly good image, Karl.
The friendly teasing reminds me of an old-but-true story about a famous American photographer (Eisenstadt, I think). He was at an exhibit of his photographs and a "society lady" asked him what camera he used. The photographer answered, "A Leica." The woman turned to her grandson and said, "See, if you get a Leica you can take pictures like Mr. Eisenstadt does."
Yeah, right .
That's a good lens- but all marks to you Karl.

Great stuff Karl, looks like you've got that rig dialed in quite nicely!

Lovely angle, action, just perfect.

Thanks for sharing!

Consider me officially and sufficiently teased... what an awesome shot buddy.

Terrific action and intensity, love the great eye contact, and your composition is perfect Karl... yes the glass is good, but the photographer is better.
Only nit/suggestion is to run some NR on the underside of the left wing.

Excellent work my friend and I can't wait to see more from this "delightful experience."
