Scissor-tailed Flycatcher Takes Off – Wing Spread

I’ve have attempted too many scissor-tailed flycatcher in flights and failed, and the takes off sequence usually captured during the progress though not as pleasing as this one – Top view, and the bird from head to that long tail of him is right on the focus plane.
