My first image in movement of a bird. In this case a new Vista of a white heron (white Egretta)... the previous image caught in the Ecological Reserve Costanera Sur and can see HERE where greater information is detailed on this species.

The image was caught in one of the lagoons of the Zoo of Buenos Aires, where they live in freedom and this case, they share the zone with a pair of great storks.

The photo was captured in way Continuous Firing in high speed without the use of tripod.

-1 1/3

Great capture Ricardo,
very good capture , good colours and exelent note, very good job Ricardo

Good action shot, Ricardo. The graceful heron pose is well captured, the hint of motion with the very subtle motion blur of the wings is nice, and the colors are good.

Great catch, I tried today to catch an egret that starts to fly but I didn't succeed, very good colours, it is pitty that it is not sharp enough, maybe you shoud choose lower F number to get a higher shutter speed.

Jolie photo de ce Héron en plein envol ! Belle composition et bon rendu du mouvement de l'oiseau...
Well done !

This is beautiful and very well caught in action. Altough the heron has a slow lift-off, it shows here the elegance of the bird in-flight. For a first shot of a bird in movement, it's a success, IMO the kind of shot many photographers like to do. Congratulations Ricardo.

Prise au bon moment le déclenchement a été fait juste au point le plus fort du décollage.
Très intéressant comme prise.
Bravo Ricardo

Hi Ricardo
Congrats on you 1st in-flight picture, always difficult to shoot. I really like your exposure here, the -1& 1/3 worked to get the bird's whites evenly exposed. A nice compo too, well done.

Lovely shot Ricardo. Very nicely done and not easy I bet. I think you should be very proud of this one very very good. Well done.

This shot has an almost dream-like quality about it with the movement in the wings and the strong contrast between white and blue.

Lift off in 5,4,3,2,1...FANTASTIC! Sharp where it´s needed, great angle, the timming was perfect!

Well done
