Hi Bill,spectacular in-flight capture of this heron fishing,a very professional work and a magnificent colors and details,impressive timing my friend!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.


Wow! Almost excellent. Too bad you didn't have your iso jacked up a smidge and and stopped down a bit. Timing was perfect but needed a bit more speed to stop the incredible action. TFS

Think it is interesting that not a person before me provided any advice to make a great picture better (although you probably already knew what I provided!! It is always easier said than done!

Best wishes,

You seem to always time your shots perfectly in order to capture such interesting moments. Love the tiny water droplets and facial features of the Green Heron. Even the fish is easily seen in nice detail. Well done!
