    This week the POTW award goes to Bucweeet @paul-3 for his energizing image of birds in flight.

    The world is filled with nature photography, so to find one that grabs your attention is indeed special, and this is one of those shots.

    It makes use of an extreme telephoto lens to produce a semi-abstract effect that is quite visually stunning.

    Also, the inclusion of the tree in the lower left, along with the sliver of landscape- provides just enough realism to keep this a rock solid nature photograph versus a complete abstraction.

    Congratulations Paul on a beautiful shot that's worthy of Audubon Magazine.

    Wow Paul, I missed this one (as I am missing a lot these days, actually everything that is not posted in the SP or the Mobile Monday, I miss).

    Congratulations Paul. Wow! I like the black and white color of birds. It has such an unreal look. Its like watching some chaotic particles reaction in reaction chamber…

    Congratulations Paul. When viewed large, it really shows what an astounding feat these creatures are able to accomplish by flying en-masse without smashing into each other. Terrific photo!
