Hi,

Hi, Arctic !

He's shooting at what we call "birds", they are in fact coloured feathers on a cork.
The yellow feathers have the lowest value, the bright rose one is called the "upperbird" and is the most valuable to shoot down.

Here's a picture of the target !

I like how the lens flare, normally undesired, is an asset and draws you into the subject. It's an interesting shot, and looks like it's a challenging competition!

In England that's called 'popinjay' shooting. Not so popular these days ...
Notice the weak and feeble use of the compound bow.
