Great shot, well done. wonderful colours and a wonderful amount of detail in the feathers. Perhaps not the most graceful image of a bird in flight but a great image all the same

Amazing that he can stay in the air. Nice lighting. Unusual BIF image but I like it.

Thanks for your kind words, folks.

@slopez, s/he had just jumped off a rooftop and then landed on a rock just 20 feet away. It's amazing how they can control their big bodies in flight.
