great timing and an impressive psoe you've caught here. I like the light glowing on the inside of his wings and the blue of the water is great too. Well seen.

Jim very nice shot and specially the expression. The water drops on the feet and the waves are excellent. Ganesh

Oh, this is a very nice action shot! Those birds could be so funny to watch. Unfortunately, I don't see them very often here. This is a beautiful capture with nice details, composition, POV and exposure. I like its pose a lot. Well done and TFS,

a great shot.
Great detail and sharpness.
This behaviour reminds me of the Black Heron in Africa that practises "canopy feeding", i.e. it uses the wings as a shade when catching fish. But perhaps the above behaviour implies something different. You're showing sharp details of this beautiful Heron in a fine pose. Excellent sharpness and I like the light hitting the inside of the wings and the colours are beautiful. Well composed too.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

You have set yourself a new benchmark, or at very least keep on recording those pictures at the high marks you have made for yourself. A wonderful picture of motion caught in still. You are blossoming into a very good photographer. Now you can quit your day job and become paparazzi!

Wonderful timing to capture this elegant creature in the midst of its dance. The pose is perfect!
Superb colours, details and composition
Great one, Jim!
I like the action of this Reddish Egret as it chases the fish in the shallow water, using its wings to shade its vision and get a better view.
Fine sharpness, lighting and composition.
Well done and TFS!

Great action image! It looks like he's using his wings to startle the prey before the sharp beak plunges in after them. Good clarity and colors. Well done.
