Hi Tom,

Wonderful in-flight capture of this heron. I love the contrasts in this picture - the dark and white sky, the dark and white sides of the wings. Wonderful face with the sharp eye and beak.


Hi Tom,
This is a superb capture of an image of this wonderful looking Heron in flight. Capturing the water and rocks in the background was an added bonus. The sharpness and detail in the image is great. Very impressive.

Incredible details on the heron! This is outstanding for any subject, but especially inflight subject. Exposure is perfect also and the colors are excellent. Congratulations!

Hi Tom, beautiful shot of this heron in flight. The colour and detail are very good. Very excellent stopped action.

Thanks, John

hi tom,
great sharpness and details, perfect timing!
very natural and easy colors.
like the soft BG, where you can still see the movements of the waves.
