A beautiful composition of a perfectly posed bird just before a take-off, captured in nice focus and great detail Callie, thank you for sharing this rare event with us my friend. A small point on your note though, "Chordata" and "Vertebrata-Vertebrates" are not synonyms of each other, Vertebrata is a subphylum of the phylum "Chordata".

What timing you have! And what skill you have to be able to capture a creature in such a way!
One of the best shots of a bird I've seen in a long time.
Congrats for that Callie.

Dynamic POV and inflight pose Callie, a well composed frame.
Very nice color, exposure, BG, and details..
These are the kinds of images that lit a fire in my heart early on, Thank you.
