I spent quite a bit of time thinking about the two birds just coming into the frame and have concluded I love them! It'd be easy to think they should be cropped, but this is a great lesson in how some elements that are partly cut off work when others don't. I'm thinking it's because they are in motion and on approach to the prize. Enjoyed musing over this composition very much, Frank :)

It seems a few of us gave this some thought and ended up at the same, that the photographer knew best. Well done! S-

It's a definite keeper and I have no doubt that it looks better in its original size. It's too bad that the upload file size is so limiting but no one has unlimited space. Could this be part of the reason for the grain or are there other factors involved?

For me the closed eyes suggest a different idea. My wife and I adopted a little boy some years ago that is autistic and he is afraid of birds. He even runs and hides if we let our sun conure out of his cage.

Well done any way you look at it.

thanks for taking a look Mike D...I think the air from the flapping wings had a bit to do with it and the grain is from a high iso and pp...

Frank, what a great action photo. The birds couldn't have been more of a help in composing something that is so fleeting. Very good work.
