Picture taken in the very early morning, perfect for the all white plumage. 4 pictures taken of this landing bird, only 1 was ok.

Hi Tom,

One out of four isn't bad. This one is beautiful. You caught him at a great moment with his wings in that position. Nice colors and details.


Hi Tom,
They are very beautiful birds. In your image I do like the open wings, the way the long neck is depicted and the yellowish eye; the latter is depicted sharp.

Wonderful pose, Tom.
Love the position of the wings and legs.
Excellent exposure. As you noted, a real challenge on those white feathers.
Beautiful composition.
TFS. : )

Like the angle of this Tom and those whites are held nicely. Feel the bird braking into a pocket of air and wrapping those wings into it. Quite dynamic really. Best, Brat.


immens details in the feathers even white!
