Aha, that's the one you mentionned in a comment on mine a few days ago! Happy to see such a beautiful image, Pieter! I like the trees behind, giving more a 3D feeling than mine. Perfect shot, in the right light, with lots of details, ie the feet in the sun. I'm sure you enjoyed waiting, watching, shooting. Congratulations... and "bon voyage" to Scotland.

Now there is a shot I wish I could take. Came close today as one of those guys passed me by as I was cycling away with my camera in the bag.. lol.. So no shot for me. This one is great. The sharpness is amazing and you can feel the movement. I also like your framing Pieter.. Thanks

Alright, I'm not into saying this, however, I must, It's your best!!!
Excelent shot, crisp, clean and detailed. Beautiful capture, super.
Well I think you should be early enough to avoid the dreaded midges ;0))))))# Hope you enjoy your visit to the UK and you get some good shots.
This one looks pretty good to me, cannt see the guide wires, so nice one on the cloning (HE HE)sorry.
A very good image all sharp and well light and the BG is nicely OOF. TFS

You nailed it at last, Pieter! I bet you had a great feeling when you got it home and saw the perfect image on your computer! Brilliantly in focus (the hard part!) and I like the background.
Now to try something a little faster?! :P

Hi Pieter. Excellent capture, it is a very beautiful view and the image is really still, makes a wonderful effect. What I will not forgive you is not to post this one in large format. It would have been perfect. Regards, Felipe.

THis is a extreme good shot of this elegant species. I often watch them walking through the meadows and I know how difficult it is to catsch them in full flight. Great work!

This is a very good heron shot. I like colors and sharpness of this bird. Good use of DOF.
